"Made these with my 8 year old son and younger nephew - that easy! Shipped them off to church for Good Friday service and they didn't stay on the table long. Everyone loved how they looked and no one could tell they were made by kids. You can't go wrong with this! Definitely a keeper!"

"I made these for Easter and everyone RAVED how beautiful they were! The ONLY complaint anyone could have is the prep time- it takes MUCH longer than 20 minutes to completely decorate the cupcakes but the end result is well worth it. Great recipe, Taste of Home!"

"This recipe was easy to make. I cut the marshmallows into thirds, though, and they turned out beautiful."

"This is pretty and maybe a newbie like me in the kitchen might try it but I don't think the picture looks like the description. Where are the Good and Plenty candies?"
