Children love the colorful marshmallows in these festive confections, which look like stained glass when they're sliced. They practically light up the room from the serving platter at our holiday parties.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 18, 2013

These cookies were really easy to make, taste really good, and will look great on my Christmas cookie tray when I make a second batch of them - I brought the first batch to a friend's holiday party last week and everyone loved them!

my mother used to make these when I was growing up now that I have the recipe I will be able to make them for myself. these were always the first one I ate.

MY REVIEW

I wish Taste of Home would let me revise my previous rating! After letting these mellow for two days, they turned out to be something we really enjoyed. I would now rate these as FOUR STARS. **** It has since become a regular part of my Christmas Cookie Platter.

I also would like to correct a typo in my original review (dated 12/14/2009):

*I relied on my own experience and melted the CHOCOLATE CHIPS gently in the microwave, then added shortening instead of butter.
