I'm giving 5 stars because these tasted great, but for some reason, my peanut butter chips wouldn't melt. They just got dry and soft, like they had been overcooked, but I checked it often in the microwave. Oh well. I added milk and put them in the freezer to harden. Will try again!

What a wonderful, healthy snack!! I melted the peanut butter chips in the microwave then added the remaining ingredients. Couldn't get much easier! I'm anxious to make them for my grandkids for a snack!
