"Definitely won't make these again. Way to messy, hard to shape, everything sticks to your hands, spoons, whatever you are using. I thought they would be cute for a party. If there's a secret to doing these, please let me know."

"My kids love to help me make these. We make them every year. Messy, but yummy and fun."

"I've been making this for over 40 years. However, I gave up making wreaths almost that many years ago. Just drop on waxed paper and somewhat make holly leaves with red hots dropped in the center. Much less messy that way."
