"I tend to make these only for special occasions, such as holidays, because I cannot keep my husband and son (and myself!) away from them. They never last long, so you might want to make a double batch. —Polly Hall, Rockford, Michigan

"I forgot to mention in my earlier review that I didn't put on any salt on them and it tasted just fine!"

"I made this recipe last year and it was utterly FANTASTIC!!! Both my husband and myself enjoyed them-it didn't last very long at home- and the bunch I sent with my husband for his co-workers disappeared quickly, as well!

This is an amazingly easy and delicious recipe! I will definitely make some more this year for both snacking and Christmas presents!
Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe! :)"
