"These were good, but a little too sweet for me. I made them again, dipped then in dark chocolate and sprinkled the top with chopped pecans while the chocolate was wet, so much better, for us anyway"

"My mom made these last week. My kids loved them! So good. I think they would be good with an almond tucked in the middle."
