I thought this recipe would work well for a bake sale using red and blue food coloring - nope! The preparation takes forever! The dough does not mix easily and tastes like corn syrup to me, not almonds! Good luck trying to incoprorate the food coloring.. I ended up with an unappetizing color-speckeled mess. I followed the directions listed so unless there is a step missing, I was not happy - the paste stays mushy too so when you pick up the treat later, you get sticky hands. In the end, I ended up scrapping the whole thing. Sorry to be harsh, but I started this with high expectations.

Someone at Hershey's Test Kitchen HAD to be on some powerful drugs when they concocted this MESS ...
