  1. omg! These were so easy to make and so awesome . I’ve made them twice already . I had to substitute Barney’s almond butter the second time because I had no natural peanut butter and my daughters wanted them ASAP! They were just as delicious !!

  2. These are totally amazing. Just had to have a go at making them. So easy to do and super yummy. Big hit with the peanut butter lovers in the family. Would recommend to anyone to have a go and try them!😊

    1. Thanks! They are a fan favorite in our house! Long ago, we used to make them with dairy-free butter (like Earth Balance) in place of coconut oil… I might try that before another oil. Let me know if you try them!
