"love the dessert"

MY REVIEW

"I have made these a number of times for my parents who are watching their weight. It is a great, quick and easy recipe that you don't have to feel guilty about eating! Plus, the fiber cereal makes them a hearty snack that will prevent over eating them. The chocolate and peanut butter-- who doesn't love that great combo! I do not use a reduced fat peanut butter. I have also added nuts to these treats."

"These are yummy, a little too much peanut butter for me, though!:) I added some wheat germ and used dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate for a healthy improvement."
