"I made these today.....very good and easy too! The little ones as well as the grown-up devoured the plate of these crackers I put out! I did not put the cream cheese in the filling, and these are still great! As I read in another review, I too did not add the milk to the chocolate coating. It came out perfect! I'll be making these alot!"

"I am not sure why you say to add the milk. My chocolate and shortening was perfect until I added the milk, then it seized. I fixed that but it wouldn't hold to the cracker. I was really not happy about that because it wasted the chocolate chips. I should have gone with my instinct to just use chocolate and shortening. I am mainly writing this so that others will be forewarned."

"The cream cheese & honey are a added touch but not neccessary. I have made these for a long time with just peanut butter & dipped in almond bark/candy coating(choc or white choc)"
