  • These have a very good taste, but mine did not set correctly for cutting into bars. After it cooled down, I tried to cut into serving sizes and it just crumbled in the pan. Not sure what happened but probably will not make again. - 7/10/11

  • These are super easy to make and quite tasty. The only issue I have is these remind me of no bake cookies. And, I did not like those no bake cookies. They do not taste exactly like them, but similiar. Yet, I got over it, and really do like these. I am sure I will make them again. - 2/24/11

  • I had to come back and comment again on this recipe- Ever since the first day I made these, I always have them in the house- I make them about once a week, and I eat them every day. I would recommend this recipe to anyone! - 2/9/11

  • These are really good. When I made them I didn't add the raisins or the peanuts, but I loved them none the less. I think I may have cooked the peanut butter mixture too long...The only problem I had with them was they were kind of sweet. - 6/8/08
