This was a HUGE hit at work. . . in fact, my boss said she wished she'd had it to take to daycare for their Easter party. I, too, had difficulty with the Twizzlers but found they stayed up better in pairs than just the single strands. My mom likes them with just 1/2 an oreo for the crust. . . My friends and I prefer the WHOLE THING!!! I baked mine in my Pampered Chef stone muffin pan and they were perfect every time. In fact, after they cool to room temperature, you can just put the stone in the fridge over night and they're ready to assemble the next morning. I plan to use this for other occasions, too. . . just with different decorations.
I've made this recipe several times. I add food coloring and leave off the coconut, candy and handle to adapt to different holidays. It's always a hit. I always make at least 2 batches and never have left overs to bring home.
I found that the cookie on the bottoms burned. Did anyone else have the same problem? Would like to try again next year though. I really liked the way they were dressed up with the coconut and jelly beans.
I made a double batch of these for an Easter party and they were great. Everyone loved them and they were gone in a flash, with no left-overs to take home. I did have a problem getting the licorice handles to stand up, but they were cute enough that nobody cared.
I made this last year and it was HUGE hit...not only with the kids but the adults also!!
This is absolutely delicious and easy to make. I took it to a Sunday dinner and it was the bell of the ball! I will prepare it next time in the heavier cupcake cups (foil type) and try to find a sturdier handle for the basket. The pastel Twizzlers were perfect, but didn't want to keep upright! ' I will definitely do this again for May baskets!
I made this with my classroom in school....they loved it and were able to do the decorating on their own...they were very proud of themselves
This was a big hit because they are cute. They taste good too. The hardest part was doing the licorice handles. First I had trouble inserting them, so I poked holes with a skewer first. Then, if the licorice was not already in a handle shape, it would sag down after I stuck it in. I fixed this by draping them all over a tall skinny jar, wrapping some plastice wrap around the jar and strips, then put it in the refrigerator to stiffen up.
I think this is a great recipe! I topped my cheesecakes with whip cream and fresh sliced strawberries- very good!! The only problem I had was that the cheesecakes sunk in a few minutes after I took them out of the oven!! Otherwise, I will definitely make them again!
an easy dessert for Easter
