"great idea! I am going to make these for our Sunday School Rally Day in Sept. It would also be a neat snack for Vacation Bible School"
"yum these look good"
"I made these this week what a fun treat, the kids loved them. I used mini cupcake cups instead of wax paper. I also put my in the fridge for a few hours to harden. GREAT idea! Thanks."
"I forgot! its also better to spread the chocolate on with a knife and you can get circular foam to put the sticks in so the chocolate can dry without the candy falling off."
"Where did you get this recipe? I started doing this a few years ago. I use lollipop sticks instead of the Popsicle kind. I also use crushed Andes mints (the green and the red ones that are in the baking isle) and crushed gram crackers. I also put them in clear treat bags with a pouch of hot chocolate so i can hand them out during the holidays."
"The directions forget to tell ou to melt the chocolate."
