Top Review by Chef on the coast

This went together really quickly. I made for the kids for an after school snack. I followed the directions as written. Next time I will follow another's suggestion and cut back on the sugar as I found it almost too sweet. The boys seemed to enjoy it though. That's the important part! Made for the November 2009 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
