I found this recipe in the Kraft Food & Family Magazine, Summer 2005 issue. It looks like something the kids could make with a little help from mom or dad.

These are delicious! My kids and I made them and we really liked them. Next time I will probably add 1/2 cup more marshmallows as we like them very gooey. Also, I use natural peanut butter that is refrigerated so would probably heat that in the micro while melting the marshmallows next time. It was cold when I put it in and I had to heat it a little longer to melt the peanut butter. Tasty recipe - thanks for sharing!
