"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."

"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?"
