These are alot of work but delicious! Sometimes I make them for Christmas, one year I made a double batch and had 8 different flavors - green mint, yellow lemon, pink strawberry, orange-orange, brown chocolate, blue coconut, white vanilla, and purple cherry (I've never seen grape extract). Leaving them out to dry overnight is challenging if you own cats who don't understand what "stay off the table/counter" means, but that problem is solved with inverted cookie sheets! :)
