MY REVIEW

"These have been a Christmas tradition for the past 7 years. We make several children's batches with red M&M noses and a couple adult batches with cinnamon candies. They're always the first treats to disappear!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 19, 2011

"I used 1lb Almond Bark for two pkgs of cookies on the white part. I also used a mini M&M for the nose but put it on the top of the white beard. I used a toothpick to put sqiggly lines in the beard. Fun but puttsy."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 1, 2011

"I've made these for two years for my Primary class at church. Once for 4yr olds, then 5yr olds and this year will be for 6yr olds, They love them and they are so easy to make just the amount you need. I did use the almond bark dipping coating instead of the chocolate since it was easier to find and this year I'm using red M&M baking bits instead of the red hots, since none of the children liked those. Everyone looks forward to them."
