    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 made this with my granddaughter using pretzels instead of the chow mein noodles but I would break the pretzels in half next time. I didn't eat any but the grandchildren enjoyed them. - 3/5/09
