With peanut butter, chocolate and marshmallows, these treats were very popular with our three kids as they were growing up—and now I make them for our two grandchildren. They're perfect for the holidays when time is so precious. —Dody Cagenello, Simsbury, Connecticut

"Easy and tasty. This is a wonderfully simple recipe.. I overlapped the foil so that I could take the treat out of the pan to cut on a cutting board."

"I decided to make a dessert for a church lunch and chose this recipe. It could not be easier! I loved how quick it was, too! When everyone took one (before they were gone) and asked who made them, I was eager to admit to the successful treat! Also it was so easy that I could give them the recipe out of my head!! A MUST-make dessert! 5-stars without hesitation!"

"Whenever I'm running out of time with Christmas baking, these are my go to (I usually bake over 100 dozen cookies for employees, family and friends). I can whip up a couple batches in just minutes to help round out my cookie boxes. Tasty and quaint looking."

"I agree with the previous post... Dipping them in the chocolate and peanut butter gives it better coverage and all around great taste!"

"Another way to dip the marshmallows is to freeze them first with a long tooth pick stuck in them for dipping - then dip them in the melted chips & peanut butter."
