I'm doing these tomorrow. I wonder which version we'll end up with!!!:panic: Especially as there will be three mindees 18mth, 21/2 and 3. Wish me luck.

Were these the sainsburys recipie ones? We did them yesterday, and I said to the 3 kiddies to squish them into balls! They were so sticky they just ended up all over their hands, and wouldn't come off... Definatley no 'head' shapes... One little boy said it was a skeleton - not really the look I was going for!

In the end I have to muster up the balls & get them to stick the bits on.

Very yummy though...

I made them today but OMG the mess! Done get me wrong I am used to messy play with paint, gloop, flour, water etc, but I think I'll need WD$) to clear the mellow stringy bits off my kitchen worktops :(

Do you think the examples shown in the recipe were as sticky ? because they look glossy and a perfect dome shape in the picture.:rolleyes:
