MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 13, 2010

These are AWESOME! Quick, easy and delicious! The only change I made was I used Honey Roasted Peanuts and they were wonderful. I can't wait to make them again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 29, 2009

This recipe is so easy to make. I didn't have enough vanilla chips so used 2/3 cup butterscotch chips and used chopped cashews instead of the peanuts. Everyone raved over how good these treats were. Can't wait to make them again!
