This is also very good made with Nestle Milk Chocolate Morsels. Can't wait to try it with the new Nestle Chocolatier morsels, too.

grandson likes these

My grandson is very picky about all his food but these wafers are a treat to him, so I try to make them for him . The rest of the family likes them also but have a hard time getting any because if you don't watch him (my grandson) he'll eat them all!

These are easy to make and are very good. We will be making them for our Christmas cookie trays.

These are awesome! I tried them once for a Christmas baking contest and I won because of them. They are perfect for freezing and sharing, but I would suggest quadrupling the recipe otherwise you won't have enough to last a while or to trade with.

Very Easy

The hardest part to this yummy candy is putting it down. Will definitely make again.

I made these and packaged them in tins for gifts, and I got a lot of comments. Instead of using the plain old red and white mints, I used some different colored candy canes, and it turned out very festive.

This was very easy for my 7-year old to help make. They go very good with hot chocolate.
