    I'm testing in-a-jar recipes for Christmas and these are not one of my top choices...Very easy to make, and very moist, but bland tasting. Nobody in my family liked them.  -  04 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    addition idea: get a small plastic bag and fill it with sprinkles. attach it to the back of the directions and lable the bag "LOVE" . on the last step of the directions, put: Remove from over and sprinkle it with Love!  -  21 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
