MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 15, 2011

I was so excited to make this for Valentine's Day. Thank goodness I worked on it the day before because I ended up throwing it in the garbage. Lining the cups was easy but peeling them without breaking them was not, but I figured I could "fix" them up with the filling. It was SO SWEET - too sweet and I LOVE sweets, but it was too much! Not edible....ended up in the trash which is unheard of at our house!!
