Reviews for Cow Pies Candy
"Easy simple recipe and for the idiot that gave it one star just because she doesn't like raisins that is no reason to even give one star.Reviews are given when you make the recipe not just by your personal preference."
"If you like Cadburry's Fruit and Nut candy, you will love these! This easy candy is a great change of pace. I used the microwave to melt the chips- stirring every 30 seconds. The raisins give these goodies an unexpected chewiness."
"sorry i dont like raisins"
"I meant to say I CHILL the candies on a waxed-paper-lined baking sheet! Thank you all for your patience!"
"A post script: I've given friends this candy, too! I like the fact that these candies are so simple to make! I DO shill the candies on waxed-paper-lined baking sheets and I use my trusty double boiler on my rangetop, rather than a microwave! This way, I can keep an eye on my chocolate candy base! I don't use almonds! But that IS an alternative-it is a key ingredient to these candies! DELOWENSTEIN"
