    Yes it is very sickly sweet but if you like Reese's products you'll probably love these too.  -  24 Dec 2013


    I love this recipe. I am a novice when it comes to baking and found this really easy. I have shared this with family and friends and they love it too. Great with a cuppa. I cut mine into 1-2" bite size pieces.  -  06 Mar 2016
