"Well, I just got done making these. Mine don''t look nearly as pretty as the picture, though :(.As the one poster said, I did have to reheat the chocolate in order to finish frosting the cookies. At one point, I just spread it on with a knife. I had to dip the ocokies into the sprinkles to make them stick as well.The white frosting recipe is not good; it comes out looking brown. I had to add red food coloring in it to get rid of the brown color. I think if you want white frosting, just get a tub of it and use that. Also, I think it would be easier to get a container of dipping chocolate chips to just zap and dip the chocolate covered cookies in. Now I have a box of 7 oz of unsweetened chocolate I don''t know what I''m going to do with!I think the end result cookie is a taste "5" looks "3" because of the decoration, and I gave it an overall "3" because of the frosting recipes."

"I''m making this for the second time today. I''m adding a little more sauce then specified and I think next time I''ll leave out the pepperoni b/c my kids don''t like it. It was a little dry without "upping" the sauce b/c the biscuits really soak it up. It is tasty and different, though!"

"The taste of the lasagna was fine, but I followed the directions to a "t" and the noodles just didn''t cook enough. I think it needs to have more water added to the sauce and for it to cook longer than stated."

"It was just "okay." I made this for a baby shower. I cooked as instructed but they came out kind of too firm and also they were difficult to cut in the pretty triangle that is shown in the picture. I probably would have been better off just cutting them into squares."

It was okay, although, to me, it was too salty. My kids (toddlers) would not eat it, though. It was quick and easy to make.
