"I make these for Marines my husband works with and they go crazy over them! Thinking about making them for the Christmas cookie contest. I don't use sugar free Jello anymore because it has a chemical-like taste to me. Easy to make but I can't "shape into balls" because the dough is gooey but I still manage to dip them in Jello."

"Unfortunately this recipe did not work out. the cookies did not spread out and they were dry. I checked my ingredients twice."

"Very good and versatile recipe. I used whole wheat flour and oatmeal flour at different times making them and no one knew it wasn't regular flour. I am diabetic and my husband has a heart condition so substitution is the name of the game when coming to eating treats. The rest of the family likes the changes too. So enjoy they are good."

"These sound great and I would love to try them but with regular sugar. Is the measurement for regular the same as the Splenda? Thanks!"
