SO CUTE!! These get 5 for appearance, 3.5 to 4 for taste (I kept recipe as is, not adding any more sugar as others mentioned)! I have wanted to make them for quite some time & my oldest son was having a cookie exchange in his class for Valentine's this year, so it was the perfect occasion! Here is what I did that might help anyone making for the first time, I know it will make it easier for me the next time! First, I only did 3 colours (per my pic), used pink, red and left one ball of dough as uncoloured. I separated & coloured my balls of dough, then refrigerated until that evening when the kiddies were in bed. I then made 24 mini balls out of each colour, working in batches as the dough softens quickly. Once I had all of my min balls, I took one of each colour and instead of rolling all together, kind of joined or meshed them as I wanted my colours separate and not tie-dyed looking. Once each colour was 'joined', I gently rolled into a snake and coiled. I did this for all 24 & kept refrigerating once coils were done. I found it much easier to insert my sticks into the cold dough, as opposed to into the softened dough. I ruined a few as I thought you pressed the sticks in & the dough would cook around them. DON'T DO THIS! Physically insert from the bottom of the cookie so that the stick is right through it! I hope that these few tips help...it will make it much quicker for me the next time! I think they looked FANTASTIC all in baggies, tied with ribbon!
