1/4 cup margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Question - I've made these before following recipe and they turned out very good. Sometimes children are not allowed to have peanut butter in recipe. Is there a substitution I could make that they turn out similar.

I just finished making these and MMmmm MMmm they are sooooo yummy! I didn't have any powdered sugar handy so I went without and they are still delicous! Easy and simple to make! You can eat them cooled or right out after the mix is done microwaving! Either way, they're soooo good! Everyone loves them!

I once ran out of chocolate chips so I used white chocolate chips instead and now I would never go without. White chocolate chips make this recipe taste soo much better! Try it out for yourself!
