    Chocolate Teddy Grams are a great substitute for the choc wafers! Ive used them many times; it takes about 4/5 of the box. Enjoy!

    Was looking for something with peanut butter and chocolate, my family's favorite, and came across this recipe. Made it last night and I couldn't keep from taste testing it.......more than once (or twice). It was wonderful, can't wait to serve it at a birthday tonight. Everything went together very well and stayed that way. I used the 14.1 oz. package of Voortman chocolate wafers and only used 20, which was almost exactly two cups. Followed the rest of the recipe exact. Turned out AWESOME!

    Taste is very good...but crumbles into nothingness when you cut into them...don't plan on using them as bars you won't get bars just a crumbled mess.

    This recipe is a hit with the kids, but I only used chocolate wafers the first time. Graham crackers or half graham crackers and half multi-grain crackers (omit the salt) work great.

    these are tasty, but are very hard to cut without cracking the chocolate. hard to present them to look nice. Although I'm sure the kids would love them either way!
