"I use this recipe every year for halloween, instead of regular chocolate m&m's, I use candy corn m&m's. My kids love it!"

"Love these! I used Reese's cereal in place of Cap'n Crunch and Reese's Pieces in place of M&Ms. Easy for kids to help whip up!"

"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."

"An absolute hit! I will certainly make these again. The only thing I would change is add more marshmallow-probably double what the recipe calls for."

"Good grief. REVIEW THE RECIPE, not your opinion on the nutrition facts or whether kids should eat it or not. Keep those opinions to yourself. I can read and judge for myself, thanks."

"Is definitely not diabetic friendly, in fact could be categorized as "diabetic causing". Lots of sugar, GMO's, and basically, junk. Kids don't need this stuff, they need your love and attention. THat being said, I'm sure it tastes yummy."

"I might be going against the grain here, but I thought there were too many m&ms. I used a whole bag, because it was only just over 1 1/ 2 cups. But everyone in the family loved it! I also used the microwave to melt the stuff--super easy. I was surprised how soft it stayed for the two days it lasted!"
