"These tasted great. I took a tip from previous reviewer and used coco rice crispies. YES! They do taste just like nutty budy bars. Ours did 'crumble' a lot but kids have away of making a lot of crumbs!"

"Easy to make and tasted great! Mine didn't hold together too well, though. Maybe I didn't mix it well enough, or I might try a different brand of peanut butter next time."

"Very simple and very good .. too bad peanut products are not allowed in schools, these would be great in lunches."

"Already made these twice!!!! How perfect these bars are and I don't think twice about giving my kids an entire bar, unlike normal rice crispy bars full of processed sugar!!!! Thank you thank you thank you!"

"These were easy to make and were fairly good. I took a double batch to a church fellowship and only brought one bar home. However, my husband didn't really care for the flavor so I probably won't make them again."
