    Made these with elders at a retirement community. They loved them. I added Peeps on top...which made them laugh! They still talk about them over a week later! - 4/24/11

  • I make these with my daughter every year for easter. I have never tried doing it with chocolate chips. I always use marshmellows and make them like a rice krispie treat. I will definetly be trying this version. I use cadbury mini eggs and peeps with mine! - 4/28/08
