Very good! I would make more of the peanut butter sauce to pour a smidgen over the top next time. That's probably because my school system made them that way. Easy to make, I had no problems...

makes me drool just looking at them. Amazing!

These tasted yummy! They are like peanut butter fudge rice crispie treats, more chewy than crunchy.

Always a pleasure to make and a joy to eat!
