MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 7, 2012

The fix to the icing that seems to be a problem to hold pieces together, can be remedied by using candy wafers melted. Use a small dab to hold jelly bean and then on the other side use a small dab to hold the lifesaver. And the best part is it dries very quickly!

Well I meant icing made with just icing sugar and water not the container of icing. But this idea with the wafers is very cute.

I have made these in the past using 2 lifesavers and icing made with just water so it hardens to hold the Jelly beans. They are always a big hit.....

I attempted this recipe for my daughter's baby shower. The frosting never did "glue" the jelly beans to the chocolate wafers. It was quite a waste of materials that I couldn't use.

MY REVIEW

I have since altered this recipe slightly. Instead of putting frosting on the wafers, I have melted down some of the wafers and used that in place of the frosting for "cementing" the life saver and jelly bean to the wafer. It lasts longer and doesn't break down like the frosting does if it gets warm. Lori Vigstol 8/17/09
