"Super easy and very cute. Had 2 dozen of them done in about 15 minutes. Could not find Chiclets anywhere, but was able to find Tic Tacs in a color that worked perfectly."

"I made these with my kindergarten class. Easy enough for them to follow instructions. They came out adorable, I used icing as well for the buckles. Kids gave recipe 5 stars, they devoured them and said "These are delicious!""

"I made these this past Thanksgiving for my daughters, my niece, and my nephews. They were a big hit. I saved a step and bought a tube of decorator's yellow icing, and I used sprinkles instead of chiclets for the buckles. They were so easy to make, and yummy too!"
