I like to tint them lightly.
A nice healthy alternative sweet treat :)
Very easy to make and very tasty. Used red and green striped candy canes. Piped them out on the smaller size so it made a lot of kisses. Great addition to our cookie trays. Will make again.
This is a family favorite...everyone askes me to make this every year
