Recipe Comments & Reviews

This is one hit of halloween recipes!
I had to leave the cookies in the oven for 8 minutes and then put them back after I added the marshmellow for an additional 3 minutes, However they were a great hit with my family and neighbors. I'll have to change the look for X-mas but I will add this to my X-Ma collection also. Thanks again. Scott S.
