I chose this recipe for a 4H demo and it was very good. I made it into 3 strips instead of 2. It was very good without dipping in chocolate, etc, but it would make a nice presentation as a gift after dipping in chocolate and sprinkling with crushed peppermints. I used the 99cent bag of peppermints and a small hammer. The peppermints tended to stick to the baking sheet a little, so spray well or use wax paper. One batch would make quite a few gifts, along with hot choc envelope. Would recommend flipping over half way through second baking. I had rave reviews and will definitely make again.
