"Really good. All of my family loves it."

"Made this with my five year old, simple enough for her to help out extensively. We put ours in shaped ice cube trays for smaller servings. We jab a toothpick into the pop when it's time to eat it. Much less meltage that way."

"Made these for my 3 year old yesterday & we tried them today. We're not fans. Followed the recipe exactly, and maybe this is how they're supposed to be, but they were very chewy. More like eating hardened pudding. What a waste of ingredients & money. Will just buy them from now."

"After tweaking this recipe a bit, I would give it five stars. I cut down on the brown sugar, adding only 1/2 packed cup and also omitted the salt. When putting "batter" into cups, I swirled in peanut butter. I am looking forward to making this recipe again!"
