"I have been making these for years, ever since they 1st appeared in the magazine. It has been made many times for school & church events. Kids love them...although I have found that most prefer creamy peanut butter & none of the "optional" peanuts. When my "non-breakfast-eating" kids were younger, I allowed them to eat them for breakfast...healthier than a pop tart, I always figured! My college student still requests these!"
