I just made these and they are cooling off. I read the reviews below and dig the one by Katz, about being careful not to use oleander sticks (really!!! I used the apple tree sticks. Oh, wait there is an Oleander bush; i think I will make some tea. item not reviewed by moderator and published

These are delicious! But I believe you should re-think the photo. There are so many highly toxic plants and shrubs out there. I'd hate for a young cook to grab a few oleander branches, or something like that, thinking they're just another stick! item not reviewed by moderator and published

These were delicious. I love the cinnamon in them. My only problem was that I mucked up the dipping of the apple (the candy got too hard before I could finish dipping them all), but that's on me and not the receipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
