    Super simple, and very tasty, but also extremely sweet. Just one is more than enough.

    These are wonderful in taste and so easy to make. One batch is never enough to meet demand!

    One of my all time favorites - easy to make and delicious. I sometimes use different chips (peanut butter and chocolate, or butterscotch and peanut butter) and add a handful of Heath chips after mixing with peanuts/potato sticks.
