    When I made these, my kids told me they liked the “fudge” I made so that is a win. I did find they got hard if left out for a bit.

    @ putterh..........are you sure you used "condensed" milk? There is a big big difference between condensed milk and canned milk (even though they both come in a can). It sounds like perhaps that was your mistake. I made these last Christmas and they were so easy and delicious. Plan on making a double batch this year for the holidays as I want to give some to friends and some neighbors. Thank you for a great recipe.

    These are amazing! I made one batch with dark chocolate chips and almond flavoring rolled in chocolate sprinkles, another one with milk chocolate chips and vanilla rolled in cocoa. The possibilities are endless!

    Couldn't be easier, with only 3 (2 main) ingredients! My kids enjoyed helping roll and top them and then eat them. I used cocoa powder, colored sugar sprinkles, and matcha drink powder.

    My daughter and I made these for Valentine and found them easy, we used different sprinkles and nuts. Think we will try to use different flavored extract's to change it up.
