These are great. I used creamy peanut butter instead of chunky and M & Ms. These are really similar to the ones my mom used to make when I was little. Thanks for the recipe.

I just made these with my day care children. They were a great hit. I didn't add the candy, peanuts or sugar but mixed in raisins. I used creamy p.butter instead of chunky. They formed into balls pretty easily. I will make them again for other projects and snack ideas. Thanks for posting.
