MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 2, 2014

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!

Very simple the 6 year old did these and had a lot of fun.

Fun to make Thanksgiving morning with my 13 year old daughter while we watched the parade. Used plain white icing without the food coloring and looked just as good. Couldn't find Chiclets so cut slices of a Lifesaver Gummy and it worked great. Everyone loved them! They are our new Thanksgiving tradition!

Really easy to make. Couldn't find the chiclets gum so I used tic tacs instead. Took this to my daughter's classroom for her Thanksgiving feast and didn't get any back!!
