“I made these (with my kids helping) for a kindergarten picnick. They turned out so cute. They were a complete hit with kids and adults. They were so easy to make we are repeating them for Valentines gifts and individually wrapping them with plastic wrap and a cute little pink ribbon. These are fantastic for bake sales too. Use any sprinkles for or sanding sugar for a different theme. The kids were so proud of their creations and had a ton fun making them. No frosting needed!!! I bought my sticks at the dollar store for a huge pack.These spread while baking so make sure you space them about 1 1/2" apart. Courtesy of Martha Stewart Everyday Food Mag October 2007.”
