  • About This Recipe

    “These cookies look very festive at Christmas time if you use red candied cherries. I also substitute plain holiday m&m’s (broken into pieces) for the chocolate chips. If you use the green candied cherries they might look nice for St.Patrick’s day.”

  • “These look SO festive! This is the perfect addition to a Christmas goodies tray — it doesn’t make very many (I got exactly 30, just as the recipe states), is fast to whip up, and has the bonus of being both attractive and tasty! I did not use the food colouring; it’s not necessary as the green colour is quite pronounced from the pudding mix. I also used both green and red candied cherries, and think both look wonderful. This recipe is a real keeper!”

  • “I used regular m&m’s and they looked quite festive. I would have preferred a more pistachio taste, but thats just me! :)”
