Reviews for Gumdrop Cereal Bars
"Gumdrops or holiday M&M look festive in these classic bars! I ususally use a dish slightly larger than the square size, preferring a thinner bar. TIP- once completely cooled bars can be gently turned out into cutting board and cut with a large sharp knife resulting in perfect squares and placing in airtight container. As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I enjoy recipes that give variations to classic recipes."

"I can't believe I'm the first person to rate this wonderful recipe! I've made these delicious bars countless times since they appeared in a 2003 issue of Quick Cooking. If you like gumdrops and you like rice krispy bars, you'll LOVE these!!"
