Reviews for Frosty Peanut Butter Cups
"Made these tonight, and if I hadn't known they were light, I never would have guessed! The PB flavor was strong and rich. I was afraid it would be overpowered by the whipped topping, but not at all. I drizzled 5g of chocolate syrup on top which added 12 calories per serving, and that was definitely worth it. PB just needs a hint of chocolate always in my book. These came together quickly, and I love having extras in the freezer for a low-cal, easily accessible treat."
"These are very light a great substitute for ice cream"
"These were quick and easy and tasted GREAT! I drizzled a little chocolate on top, too. Thanks!"
"NETIZEN---GO EAT YOUR CELERY!!!!"
"Delicious, & very easy to make. My family loves these!!!"
"I made these yesterday. They taste good, but the graham cracker portion crumbles and dont leave these sit out more than 5 or 10 minutes or they thaw. They taste awesome and I will probably make them again."
"My objection is to calling an unhealthy recipe healthy. Where is the common sense in that? There is a big difference between celery and TRANS FATS. Substitutions? Sure, tell me what to substitute for the graham crackers, peanut butter, pudding and the whipped topping, so I can make this recipe?"
"Very tasty! It's a quick and easy dessert for my kids. I like that they are in single servings so I can just pull them out as needed."
"These were great..keep them in the freezer then they only need about 5 minutes to thaw a bit..yum..if they thaw too long you will need a plate & fork but this is good too..I ended up giving most of the first batch away so will be making another very soon...enjoy"
"Great! They are a great frozen treat. Only problem, they are hard to stay out of."
"This recipe was surprisingly easy & very, very tasty! My significant other LOVED them!"
"I made these a few days ago, and they were a hit with my boyfriend, and the kids. They are pretty simple to make and quite tasty. I wonder how'd they'd be with crunchy peanut butter instead? I'd rather the kids eat one of these instead of a handful of Oreo's..."
"My mother has diabetes. She also has the senseto read ingredients and make adjustments when necessary and the courtesy to allow others to make their own decisions without haranguing them with her personal problems. I respect your need to watch what you eat very carefully. What I object to is your repeated negative comments about recipes that you have no intention of trying and your assumption that no one but you has enough sense to identify problems with ingredients. I'm allergic to celery, but I'm not going to criticise recipes that include it."
"despite that fact that these are neither healthy or diabetic friendly I made them because I am able to decipher this information for my self. that being said these are quite yummy, my kids helped and the hardest part is waiting for them to set up. I will make again."
"FOR GRANDMAJAB, SORRY, DIDN'T MEAN TO RUFFLE YOUR FEATHERS. I DO INDEED HAVE TWO BROTHERS WITH DIABETES AND I AM RECOVERING FROM CANCER, BUT FORTUNATLY THE GOOD LORD GAVE US ALL THE ABILITY TO READ AND THINK, SO WE CAN READ A RECIPE AND DECIDE WHAT WE CAN AND CAN'T EAT."
"To reduce the fat and sugar content I used sugar free pudding, skim milk, margarine, and sugar/fat free whipped toppings...making them in the mini muffin cups (as someone mentioned) are also excellent way to reduce serving size."
"i loved these they were easy to make and was very good and i will make them again"
"ferretmama &allenakt you evedently have never known anyone with diabetes i have it & i have had several family nembers die from it because they did not pay any attention to what they ate. they would have eaten this delicios recipe. not me!!!! & I am bored with remarkes like yours, when you dont know what your talking about."
"Sorry that the truth bores you ferretmamma. My negative reviews generally are about the same thing as here. Recipes touted as healthy or diabetic friendly, showing up in my mailbox when they clearly are not healthy. My opinion is just as valid as yours"
"To bunnerb - I also wish that TOH would include the grams of sugar in the analysis counts. Plus I forgot that a lot of peanut butters also have hydrogenated oils/TRANS FATS, so add that to the graham cracker crumbs, instant pudding and whipped topping if frozen even the FREE and that makes 4 ingredients to clog the arteries in this UNhealthy recipe."
"Wonderful! For those of you who don't want to eat all your carbs in one sitting, consider making them in mini-muffin cups."
"I HAVEN'T MADE THIS YET, ONLY BECAUSE I JUST NOW SAW IT, AND ALSO I TAKE THE TIME TO READ ALL THE REVIEWS SO I CAN SEE WHAT SUGGESTIONS THERE MAY BE FOR A NOVICE COOK LIKE MYSELF. I ALSO LIKE WHAT FERRETMAMA SAID TO THE LADY THAT ALWAYS WRITES BAD REVIEWS. MY NIECE IS ALSO A FERRET MOTHER, IF I'M THINKING OF THE SAME FURRY CRITTER"
"Expounding on Netizen's review, being diabetic, I don't understand how you can consider a serving of 23 grams of carbs as diabetic-friendly. That's equal to about 1 1/2 slices of bread for just a small cup. Pulleeze!"
"Easy and certainly tasty. I topped with a drizzle of chocolate syrup and chopped dry roast peanuts. To Netizen -- I checked your past posts and see that you almost never say ANYTHING positive. I wish people like you would just go away and be quiet instead of complaining about recipes that you not only haven't tried, but probably wouldn't EVER try. People like you bore me."
"How in the world can anyone call a recipe with THREE items containing hydrogenated oils/TRANS FATS - healthy? HOW? Sheesh."
"These were so easy to make - my two kids even helped! They tasted great, not too rich. I nice cool treat on a 90 degree day!"
"Reminds of a fozen PB pie my mom's cousin used to make when I was a kid.She swirled Hershey's syrup on top. When I make these, I'll add some too."
