These were so much fun to make. I found them on the Kraft Foods website and new instantly I had to try them out. I made them as a special treat for my kids and hubby for Valentine's Day. Their faces were priceless when they found the hidden surprise inside. It's the little things that can make or break a day, and for my kids that little surprise was all it took to have them raving. Surprisingly my sweets only occasionally husband gobbled his up to.
