    How can you call this recipe "healthy"? Not only does it contain margarine which has processed oils and trans fats, but it also contains Splenda, an artificial sweetener with a history of bad side affects. I would avoid this one like the plague! - 3/22/10

    First This was very good.
    Second, Thissitesux you can substitution the ingredients like the margarine for something else. Splenda can be changed to Raw sugar . So you should not Ripe a recipe when you can make substitution. You learn that on Spark.

    Very Good
    I had left ot the coffee, because I just can't stand coffee in general.These were great even without the frosting. Because of the high sugar in these, I think that's why we don't need any frosting. Great anyway. - 6/22/11
