"I made this for a potluck and everyone loved it! Very easy to make. I used dark chocolate M&Ms with the Cap'n Crunch cereal. You could change it up to whatever you wanted, it's very versatile."

"For those concerned with those who may have nut allergies, try this with plain Kix cereal and Biscoff spread. If you are not familiar with Biscoff spread, it is a spread that is made with those wonderful Biscoff cookies you get on most plane flights. Wonderful!! Oh, and definitely use more than 1 tablespoon."

"Made a couple of changes by adding more peanut butter and marshmallows as I didn't think there was enough marshmallow goo and I used Reese's Pieces rather than M&Ms to notch up the PB flavor. A big hit."
