MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 13, 2014

"I loved this quick and easy recipe. I used 2 muffin pans instead of a 9x13" pan. I liked the individual servings, perfect for one person."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 29, 2014

"I think the 50/50 butterscotch/chocolate chips is a mistake...the butterscotch adds an overly sweet off taste to the mix. Everyone knows pb and chocolate are the match we're looking for! Otherwise, a solid and simple recipe."

"We really love these treats. I also like that they don't have any karo syrup in them. They are great just the way they are"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 10, 2011

"The only recipe I will use now. It took 3 minutes in the microwave for the marshmallows and 3 minutes to melt the chocolate. I only put it in the fridge for a half hour to harden up the chocolate. They were easy to cut and eat."
