"I made these for a baby shower. The process is fairly easy, few ingredients, inexpensive to make. And they look and taste fabulous. However, mine were so sticky, I couldn't serve them. Not sure if I did something wrong. I baked them the 2 hours noted and then another 1 hr, but they were still sticky. I've made meringues before without problem. Maybe it's the jam you are adding? Weather? Don't know if I would try them again."

"These were not as easy for me as they sounded. And mine don't look as good as the photo, but they look okay. I had to refrigerate the almond bark to get it to harden and when I removed the candy cups from paper cups, some of the sides broke up a bit. I suggest leaving the white chocolate in the paper cup to make a more appealing presentation. The taste of the chocolate ganache is wonderful and making it was easy. However, I did not get 24 cups out of it. Only 16."

"I gave these a 3 because the kids loved them, however I found them difficult to make. I know that sounds crazy because look how easy they sound. But, I couldn't get the melted coating to stick to the pretzels, it kept dripping off and making a mess. Managed to do it, but it was frustrating. Maybe a caramel would work better than the coating??"
