    Fast and Easy

    Gerri Toews from RISKE CREEK, BC

    This was a hit with my grandson, neices and nephews. Very easy, and convenient. The first time I made it I didn't have raisenettes, so i just used raisins, and some chocolate morsels. It was still delicious. I have made it a number of times, and tried extra ingredients, such as sunflower seeds, nuts etc. Always good, and nutritious.

    Very quick and easy. This would be wonderful for a scout troop, or other children's group because they could prepare it them selves.
