These were a favorite of mine in elementary school in Arkansas. They are very easy to make. My three year old son loves them and they bring back memories for me. They are also good to throw in a zip bag for travel.

I had these in elementary school in Colorado and have been making these for years. My grown kids still like to make and eat these chewy snacks.
