I gave these out as gifts before I tried the recipe. One person commented she needed to add more margerine because they didnt hold together. Another person commented they were hard to chew. I had to bake some to find out for myself. I agreed it needed more margerine and make sure to use mini M & Ms, the regular size fall out when you form the balls. The taste is good and my kids liked them.

Pretty easy. However, there's so much stuff in them that when you bake them they hardly stay together. In fact, some of mine broke apart even after completely cooling them. They're somewhat tasty, but they have too much 'stuff'. I'd cut one of the goodies out.

We found that you need to use 1/2 cup margarine instead of the listed 1/4 cup. I believe this might have been a typo because every similar recipe has 1/2 cup.

I am planning on making these for Christmas gifts, so I decided to try them for myself. I thought the cookies were really good, chewy and crispy. My husband and daughter both loved them. They were easy to make and looked really nice layered in the jar. The typo must have been fixed, because the recipe now calls for 1/2 cup margarine and I had no problems getting the cookies to hold together. I am also thinking about trying them with chopped nuts.

I decided to use this recipe for my daughter's 5th grade class Valentine's Day Party. I cut the recipe in half and used a pint size jar. We put raffia and Valentine ribbon around the top of the jar with the recipe attached. All the kids loved the project and the kids loved baking the cookies at home. They said the cookies were "awesome". I will use this recipe for Easter gifts using pastel M&Ms for my Sunday school class. Thanks for a great idea!pattih5

This is an easy recipe and looks beautiful! A fun gift idea for any occasion. I found you can use the "seasonal" M&M's to make it appropriate for any occasion.

Makes a great gift and everyone loves them! You can use different colored rice crispy's to make it even more colorful!

The jars look great. The cookie tastes good, it a bit dry and hard. Would cut down on the amount of Choc. Chips, found there were too many.
