    I made 5 batches, the first 2 came out great, the next 3 never jelled up and were a gooy mess. I think that the moister in the air really effects this recipe. The first 2 batches I made up it was cold, the next 3 it was rainy and I was baking other things too. Will try one more time becuase they tastes really good when they came out right.

    My daughters made this and had fun but when I tried to wrap them, they started to turn into a gooey mess. I will never make these ever again, and I urge anyone who is considering it to think twice, unless they like sticky kitchens and frustration.

    it is kind of sticky, but it is a great recipe.
