I actually made these last year and forgot to post them. I usually make them throughout the year because they are really easy. After the holidays you can find the flavored JELL-O on clearance. I got the Classic Turtle which I used for this recipe for 25 cents. They make an easy cookie for your next cookie exchange or holiday gift baskets.
