MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 20, 2011

I made this recipe last year and I'm looking forward to making it again. It makes great teacher gifts. I also made one with chocolate and craisens. This was a big hit. And the one with crushed candy canes was good too.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 1, 2011

I have looked for this recipe for many years after the candy was shared with me in 1997. I used almond bark rather than chips, and that worked well. I also mixed M&M's and pretzels because I love the sweet and salty combo. I'll be making this next year to give as a gift to friends! I can't believe how easy it was, but it doesn't appear that way.
