MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 1, 2013

"Good, quick and easy recipe. Because we had many boxes of Cheerios on hand we used them instead. They were great! I was worried the first time I made them that it wasn't going to firm up. But they did - not too hard and not too soft, just right. These bars are good even without the chocolate coating!"
