    This is my favorite treat to make! Guests absolutely love them!

    Chewy vs Snappy

    Lindsey Ambuehl from Springfield, OH

    I did use rounded teaspoons for this recipe but the middles were kind of thick and therefore the edges hardened quicker than the middle and so they would come off the pan. They were really greasy too so it was hard to wrap them around the spoon. They were very rich but still delicious.

    Delicious

    Jan Wilkins from BLYTHEVILLE, AR

    Actually I made these for a "welcome" gift basket. Naturally, had to keep some for us! They were delicious.

    Fantastic!

    Julie Gray from BLUE MOUNDS, WI

    Fabulous! As soon as I seen this recipe I knew I had to try it. Used the parchment paper and had no problem with them sticking. I let them cool a little longer so they weren't so fragile. An Ove Glove would come in handy since they are very warm when you're trying to roll them. Simple to make. Delicous. Will definately make again. Everyone wanted a copy of the recipe. Don't be scared off by the fact there's brandy in it. It's not enough to make it adult only.

    chocolate dipped brandy snaps

    Bev Gregory from HOUSE SPRINGS, MO

    Excellent cookie. We dropped smaller amounts on the tray and then rolled them up. Did more than 6 -- with 2 working together, it worked fine.

    Dipped brandy snaps

    Theresa Sibbons from SHERWOOD PARK, AB

    These taste great and make a wonderful gift with coffee! The only thing is that they have to bake long enough or they are more like brandy chews. Taste great when they are made correctly!

    Fabulous...but a little tricky

    MARTY KILLINGER from WAUKESHA, WI

    Great recipe when you want something "a little special" but pay close attention to directions. Leave plenty of space between cookies on baking sheet and DON'T let them cool more than 10 secs or they will adhere to the sheet...plus they will break instead of wrapping around spoon.

    Great Recipe

    MARIA SUSTAITA from DONNA, TX

    I used this recipe for a Valentine's Day Party we had. My guests kept on asking if I had come up with the recipe myself, and I just said that it was a secret recipe among special cooks/bakers only. Before I knew it, they were all gone and that's cause I had made over four dozens.

    Brandy Snaps

    Angel Schmitz from Laurel, MD

    cookies were actually easy to make; I got rave reviews, but alas the first batch burned my fingers: the second, I used my NEW silcone mats to roll the hot (very hot) cookies and that made it much quicker to roll! Try it!

    Thank you Nestle!!!

    Debi Larocque from WELLAND, ON

    I tried these for the first time yesterday. I have been looking for a recipe for something like this - every year at Christmas we receive as a gift boxes of premium cookies from a local grocery store that have "rolls" like these in them, and they are my favourite cookie from the box. Now that I have a base for these cookies I am going to try and recreate their cookie. Theirs doesn't have the nuts on them, but I definitely loved the added crunch it gave the cookies! Well worth the effort. Thank you Nestle!!

    I was hesitant because it was rated difficult but I didn't find it as hard as I expected. It took concentration and I followed the directions to a "T". I brought them to the club and everyone gobbled them up.

    oh boy were they good

    Timothy Riley from BEACH PARK, IL

    I took these to some friends who own a liquor store and they offered them to their customers. After tasting they they all came back for the recipes, and to buy rum. This store sold more rum than ever. All thanks to the recipe

    Tasty Brandy Snaps

    Stephen Lanning from AMARILLO, TX

    This was a very easy recipe. It is a very crunchy then chewy sweet treat. Very tasty. They dry fast so 6 at a time is a good number to cook. Enjoy, there a great family cooking project. Stephen

    Perfect and Delicious

    Lielle Gonsalves from RICHMOND HILL, ON

    I made these on the weekend as I love baking and trying out new recipes all the time and as soon as the first batch was rolled an cooled it was gone. I had a friend over and she could not stop eating them, I only got to roll the last batch in chocolate and those did not last too. Fantastic recipe I have added this one to my favorite list to make time and over.

    This Chocolate Dipped Brandy Snaps was a very great recipe. I enjoyed these cookies and so did my family. I am always baking a new cookie so I figuered that I would try these ones out and they came out very great.

    delicious!

    Jennifer Smith from Indianapolis, IN

    I made these a few days ago, and they were a hit! I used vanilla extract instead of brandy though. When my mom tried them, she asked for the recipe. I would definitely make these again.

    Very Easy to Make

    Donna June from FORT CALHOUN, NE

    I made these at Christmas, they were much easier than I thought. My whole family enjoyed them, and they looked so pretty on the plate. These are a must for special occasions.

    Challenging-but good

    Amber Roccabruna from MIDDLETOWN, NY

    These were definitely for the challenge minded. I learned the hard way why the recipe states to only bake 6 at a time- follow the recipe exactly on this one. But, the result is worth the effort!

  •  Star(s)

    tasty but beware

    Olivia Zamora from DONNA, TX

    The cookies were very good and I am sure that I will make them again, but if you do not have vegetable shortening do not try to use milk. It just makes the chocolate thick and hard to work with.

  •  Star(s)

    It looks like a lot of work but it is very easy and it was fun to make. Everyone just loved them they taste wonderful just melt in your mouth.

    OUT OF THIS WORLD

    Marcia Bush from UPPER MARLBORO, MD

    My daughter and I made these cookies for Christmas and everyone absolutely loved them. They were more interested in the cookies than the dinner itself. We added a little more brandy than the recipe called for and of course made some for the kids in the family with artificial rum and coconut and they were a huge hit. Thanks so much for making our Christmas extra special!!!!!
