  1. The kids in your boy’s class are so lucky! Your treats turned out amazing.

  2. where can you find the cookies

  3. These are too cute! We have got to make them for our Hot Chocolate Bar for Xmas Eve!

  4. This would be so neat done for Valentines day too!

  5. I was thinking for Valentines day as well. You could use heart sprinkles and a large conversation heart with the point stuck in the side for the handle.

  6. I’m the Editorial Assistant for Fun Family Crafts and I wanted to let you know that we have featured these adorable treats! You can see them here:

  7. Loved those cookies I am a Nanny and I enjoy baking with my kids we will make these for the holidays thank you!!!!

  8. These are so adorable! I hope you don’t mind I’m sharing this on my I Love Christmas 24/7 Facebook page 🙂

  9. These are so darling. What a clever idea!

  10. Making these for my family cookie day
    All entries are to be baked somehow so I am making easy shortbread cookies for the bottom and chocolate wafer cookies for the top. A little more work but hopefully it wil pay off! Thanks for the great idea!!

  11. I would like to make these ahead for a cookie exchange……what would be the best way to keep them fresh (i.e. the marshmallow soft)? Will these store?

  12. These are SO cute! Can you use canned frosting instead of cookie icing?

  13. These are so cute!!! I am totally going to make them for my friends! Do you think it’s a good idea for a small Christmas gathering? ❤️

  14. How can you keep the marshmallows from getting stale if you’re making them for a party?
