I made these for Valentine's Day and replaced the nuts with candy hearts. I gave them to my granddaughter so she could have them for her Valentine's party at school. They are so cute and easy to make, and I am sure the kids will love them.

I made these to help fill up my Easter baskets for my family. Instead of topping them with a nut, I topped them with plain and peanut pastel Easter M&M's. They are so good that once you have one, you can't stop! Such a great addition and though not a traditional Easter candy, it will be with me from now on!

I made 20 of these FOR MYSELF! They are great, and I would make them to gift to others any time. For a different twist, I added 1/2 marachinno cherry to 3 of them. These were also great....easy, so tasty, and fairly cheap to make.
