I was actually kind of disappointed with this recipe - I'm not sure they were worth the trouble to make them. They were VERY sticky and hard to work with, and I don't think I would make them again. They were also not as sweet as I thought they would be so that was quite a let-down. If you try this recipe, perhaps tweak it a bit if you want it to be sweeter. I'm not good with adjusting recipes so good luck if you are going to try this!
