    I went by the recipe and mine came out as one big gooey mess. Will try them one more time.  -  16 May 2011


    I took the 1st batch out a little early so they were a bit fragile - I let the next batches go a little brown and they are perfect. Amazingly easy and loved by the family (and me!)  -  08 Feb 2011


    Well this has just spread across the baking tray into one big mess in the oven. Kept in for a while as middle not cooked. Not great. Although my toddler loves it.  -  28 Jan 2015
