Reviews for Easy Peanut Butter Balls
"It really is that easy! Just a few ingredients and you will have a ton of treats in no time. I have substituted cheerios a few times- not as crisp as the cornflakes but still very good. I, too, on occasion simply spread into a 9x13. Just be certain not to compact the flakes too tightly or it will be difficult to cut."
"Quick & easy for when the kids need a treat, and there's not much in the house!"
"Instead of dropping them on wax paper I like to put them in a 9x13 pan, let them cool, and cut them into bars. They are delicious!"
