Made this with my five year old, simple enough for her to help out extensively. We put ours in shaped ice cube trays for smaller servings. We jab a toothpick into the pop when it's time to eat it. Much less meltage that way.

Made these for my 3 year old yesterday & we tried them today. We're not fans. Followed the recipe exactly, and maybe this is how they're supposed to be, but they were very chewy. More like eating hardened pudding. What a waste of ingredients & money. Will just buy them from now.

Horrible, my 11 yr gson wouldn't even eat them. I followed the recipe exactly. Left a film in your mouth, butter maybe.

Has anyone tried this with soy or coconut milk? We're a non-dairy household.

After tweaking this recipe a bit, I would give it five stars. I cut down on the brown sugar, adding only 1/2 packed cup and also omitted the salt. When putting "batter" into cups, I swirled in peanut butter. I am looking forward to making this recipe again!
