August...I simply cannot believe it's August already!  It seems like summer just started yesterday!! 

While I'll be trying to squeeze out every last drop of summer this month, I will also be getting ready for my sons to go back to school.  It seems August has become the "official" back to school month for many.  This quick and easy recipe is a kid-approved snack idea perfect for a yummy after-school or anytime snack!

As simple snack recipes go, this one is a winner.  With just a few ingredients, you can have a treat made in no time.  Jell-o® pudding mix, low-fat milk, and peanut butter are combined with Cool Whip® to create a creamy middle which is sandwiched between two graham crackers and then drizzled with chocolate and popped into the freezer until set.  

Since I was out running errands yesterday anyway, I stopped at Walmart to pick up everything I needed to make this recipe. #AddCoolWhip

Quick and Easy Frozen Peanut Butter Snack Squares got two thumbs up from all the boys in my house, even my husband!  Having this snack in the freezer and ready to serve will make life a little easier during what can be a very hectic time of year!

  11. Seems like the yield would be 6-7 snack squares, if you have 2 graham cracker halves per snack.

    1. The Jell-O pudding in the recipe uses a sugar free version, and that is only 1 oz. If you wanted to use the version that is not sugar free, then it would be 3 oz. But as written, 1 oz is correct. Thanks!

  14. My peanut butter pie filling is similar to this. could just leave out the pudding mix.
