    This is an excellent idea in lieu of the standard cake theme. The kids would certainly have more fun this way.

    Good for Grandchildren

    Maureen Vetromila from MOROCCO, IN

    I would have rated this recipe better, but my 12 year old grandson had a hard time preparing this; even with me at his side. He want to become a baker/chef when he is old enough so I've been preparing him for the world ahead of him. Maybe he just needs more time to develop. He was upset that it didn't turn out like the picture shown. Sorry....

    I made these with my grand daughter and it was fun. I have to try again because they didn't go over the best. Didn't know if I had done something wrong.

    I made these for my daughters last day of school party. The 6 girls all had one and said they was good but didn't ask for seconds. I also made them for a church ice cream social. I brought home almost half (maybe there was too many sweets). quick, fun easy to make

    Yummy

    Krystel Rosales from CHICAGO, IL

    I made this recipe for my son's birthday instead of a cake this year not only did the kid's enjoy them but the adults as well. It's a wonderful and easy recipe for birthday parties.

    LOVE 'EM

    Ms. Balschuk from FARMINGDALE, NY

    We are not much for NERDS so I took the reader's suggestion of using chopped salted peanuts (THANK YOU!)as a topping. I also added some crushed BUTTERFINGER bar to them and sprinkled that on top. The combination of salt and sweet was PERFECT. A nice dessert to bring to a potluck dinner as both the kids and adults will like them. ( So good that Bart Simpson would help himself to the entire batch!!!)

    kid favorite

    Angi Stump from Lebanon, IN

    Well, the kids love them, but the sugar buzz they get may leave the parents on edge. You can also use crushed peanuts on top for a saltier taste.

    Not just nerds

    Thomas S. from Murrieta, CA

    When I tried this recipe out I did not really like the nerds on it, so I tried other things. Sprinkles, mini-chocolate chips, or just adding food colouring all work really good as well. I had to make 8 batches for the kids at my sister's B-day party, and almost every batch had a different topping, and they all were big hits (there was no leftovers.)

    good

    Demetria Medford from Amarillo, TX

    Me and my kids love this recipe. I made them for a slumber party and they kids couldn't get enough. We also altered it a little buy putting Butterfinger pieces on top instead of Nerds.

    Heather Merluzzi from North Syracuse, NY

    Boy the kids loved these! The topping overpowered the cookie cup. Too much sweets in one spot. Were a nice once in a while treat though. For color you could use sprinkles instead of the candy nerds.
