"I am asked to make this every year for Christmas dinner. Instead of plain peanut butter every time, I sometimes will use apple dip instead. Equally yummy!"

"Stimulates a ho hum appetite with crunchy texture and zingy peanut butter flavor. My elderly Mom loved it, and she doesn't usually try new foods!"
