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
Great recipe. Everyone loved them. Right size serving for the cheesecake.
