    Made these tonight, and if I hadn't known they were light, I never would have guessed! The PB flavor was strong and rich. I was afraid it would be overpowered by the whipped topping, but not at all. I drizzled 5g of chocolate syrup on top which added 12 calories per serving, and that was definitely worth it. PB just needs a hint of chocolate always in my book. These came together quickly, and I love having extras in the freezer for a low-cal, easily accessible treat.

    I made these yesterday. They taste good, but the graham cracker portion crumbles and dont leave these sit out more than 5 or 10 minutes or they thaw. They taste awesome and I will probably make them again.

    My objection is to calling an unhealthy recipe healthy. Where is the common sense in that? There is a big difference between celery and TRANS FATS. Substitutions? Sure, tell me what to substitute for the graham crackers, peanut butter, pudding and the whipped topping, so I can make this recipe?

    Very tasty! It's a quick and easy dessert for my kids. I like that they are in single servings so I can just pull them out as needed.

    These were great..keep them in the freezer then they only need about 5 minutes to thaw a bit..yum..if they thaw too long you will need a plate & fork but this is good too..I ended up giving most of the first batch away so will be making another very soon...enjoy

    Great! They are a great frozen treat. Only problem, they are hard to stay out of.
