Just like kids, I love fun treats, and these really fit the bill. Plus, they are so easy to make and package! I wrapped these in cello bags with twist ties. As a variation, make the crispy treat with 3 tablespoons of peanut butter and reduce the butter to 2 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons.—Susan Scarborough, Fernandina Beach, Florida
