These crispy, chewy treats pack lots of peanut flavor. They're our favorite travel snack. I always make a double batch so we have some left when we reach our destination. —Mrs. W.H. Gregory, Roanoke, Virginia

"Made these for healthy snack day at work and they were a big hit! Also couldn't get them to stay in a cluster. Some did though, and were great! Maybe a little more corn starch would help them "glue"! Good snack recipe."

"These were very good! They taste like sweet n salty granola bars but I think that they are better because they are softer."

"These were tasty! I ran out of corn syrup part way through making a triple batch, so substituted honey. I also used chocolate peanut butter for most of the batch as I ran out of the regular part way through too! They turned out equally yummy, although they did not want to stick together as well as I thought they should. Regardless, my family loved these!"
