    I made your recipe for peanut butter Shakeology cups and they were a HIT at my kids bake sale. Instead of yielding a dozen, I roughly ripped them in half by hand, to get 2 dozen cups. Then I put two in a clear candy bag and sold them for a suggested donation of $2.

    I saved one bag for mommy’s ride home.
