  1. I really wasn't all that excited about this. It was a pain to make and wouldn't slice. The milk powder refused to mix in properly. I also didn't like how it tasted. Only one of my 2 children ate it (the one who will eat anything).
  2. evewitch must have used WAY too much of the powdered milk in this recipe. Different peanut butters have different levels of moisture, and that is the reason that Step 2 says: "Work in as much of the dry milk as you need to make the mixture easy to handle and fairly stiff."... This recipe really is a wonderful sweet treat if directions are followed correctly. It has been one of my personal favorites since college, and I'd hate for anyone to pass this recipe off because of one bad review. In spite of the thumbs-down review, I'm glad evewitch brought this up so that I can further stress this particular step. By the way, I just now looked back in my old recipe file, and tracked down the source of the original recipe. In case you are curious, it's from a vegetarian cookbook, called "Recipes for a Small Planet."
  3. I remember my mom and I making these when I was little. I think we ommitted the optional coconut, but used sunflower seeds for a nice little crunch. Thanks for posting. I couldn't remember how we made these, but now that I have this recipe, I'll have to try it again.


<p>September 15, 2007: Here's a photo of me and my two girls before leaving our hotel room to go to an Avett Brothers concert. We're all huge fans of the group. We're also huge fans of each other. It's fun to have adult children. <br /> <br /> <br />--- About me: I'm an artist, and art teacher to kids kindergarten age through 8th grade. My life whirls at a breakneck pace. I teach approximately 800 students, and have 30 different classes each week. It's crazy!!! The rewards, however, are the numerous hugs and good vibes I get from my students. If I didn't have my good-looking husband to stabilize me, I'd surely be sporting a straight-jacket. Oh, and did I mention my yarn obsession? I've made hundreds of crochet items in the past few months, and have a little shop on etsy. Check out my website when you have the time:</p> 8754768"
