We used to make these as kids at home all the time and ate them up fast as you please. I'd forgotten how to make them over the years, and since Mom's now passed away, had no way of knowing how to make them again...until now. Thank you so much for posting this delicious and easy recipe. Takes me right back to being a kid again. We also made them without the peanut butter; or left the cocoa out, and added more peanut butter. :)

My grandma makes these all the time! But I never know where to find this recipe! I'm thinking of adding chocolate chips to this. Thanks for submitting this!

I had a friend who use to make these when I was growing up. Could never remember the recipe! These are so good. She makes them with the coconut- which husband does not like so this was perfect! Can't wait til my twins are older and they can have these!
