    Awesome

    Christine Loving from Chantilly, VA

    Took these to work and they were gone fast! A little tough on the arms to mix that powdered sugar in the peanut butter, but it was worth it! Licking all the bowls was a good prize, too!

    Looks better than it is

    Jennifer du Toit from United States

    This looked amazing in the picture, but the peanut butter part of the dish is too soft. With some alterations, this could be amazing, but as is it is mediocre.

    Delicious

    Jill Appel from Chicago

    I made these for a treat at the office. They were a HUGE hit. Everyone asked for the recipe. I used a rolling pin to break up the pretzels.
