Kids love these cookies! They are fun looking and fun to eat! I will warn you cut up jelly beans before starting. That will take more time than anything else in this recipe. I only chopped up 3/...

These were quick and easy to make and so very yummy. We will definitely be making these again. They are sweet so be warned if you don't like really sweet things.

The recipe was quick and easy to follow. Fun way to use up the extra jelly beans.

Great cookie, small batch April 22, 2019 9/10

I will make it again but I may add some coconut which I love. I used gourmet mini jellybeans and didn’t have to cut them in half. Delicious,

I did the recipe exactly, I liked it. Next batch I used sour patch kids, and shortning instead of butter. I liked those better. This is a good cookie recipe by itself. Next weekend I'll try ...

Made as directed with one change. Used Gum drops also known as spice drops. Very good.
