"Simple recipe and quick, great for a party. I'd say the design does take some experience, however. People unfamiliar with making the pattern may have trouble. Also the coconut made it chunky and distorted the pattern a little bit (not anything like the picture). But overall they looked like spiderwebs."

"I tried this recipe since my 3 year old is really into Spiderman, I knew he would enjoy making these with me. These were very good and easy to prepare. They remind me of the taste of a white chocolate haystack. Thank you for sharing. This is a keeper. We will make many memories with this recipe."

"The candy is yummy. Try adding nuts instead of coconut."
