MY REVIEW

"So yummy ... I substituted the candy for fresh sliced strawberry and it was great !!!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 20, 2012

"So a friend told me that I probably used condensed milk instead of sweetened condensed milk, and she was right. I tried it again with the right stuff, and it worked. This is a very good recipe. I was very happy with the new results!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 19, 2012

"I made2 separate batches, the pictures looked so good! Neither one got firm. The next morning, both were still liquid. Maybe the cream of tartar needed to be cooked in the white chocolate? I was very disappointed."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2012

"This is a new family favorite! I made these as part of an assortment of cookies and candies given as gifts this year. They look so festive and the flavor is outstanding. We'll definitely be making these again...only we'll keep some for ourselves next time!"
