"I made this dish for my son as an afternoon snack and he loved it. I will say, however, I need to add an apple corer to my kitchen supply...was a little hard w/o it."

"Really easy and really good! I've also made with granola in place of the choc chips and raisins. For a class treat where I couldn't use peanut butter because of allergies, I used melted caramel and granola."

"My crew are not into raisins so I replaced them with sunflower seeds, they like the extra crunch too. Also awesome idea for appetizers. Thanks"
