    1. hello. If making these as a gift for someone… How would you suggest doing the drizzle? Since you say not to drizzle until ready to serve? Would it work making the drizzle and placing in a baggy that they could snip the corner and drizzle when ready? or do you think that the drizzle would harden and therefore not work? Thank you. Recipe sounds amazing..

      • Hi Nancy, I think that’s a great idea! You can find little bags in the craft section at Walmart on the jewelry making aisle that are the perfect size for this.
