Recipe Comments & Reviews

I made this to hand out to friends at Halloween. One neighbor liked it so much that she tried imitating the recipe (this one is better); another neighbor came by to ask for the recipe because her kids loved it!
My teenage son and I made this for him to take to a Halloween Party, but we did add gummi worms to the mix it was a very big hit. I am glad we doubled everything.
