MY REVIEW

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!

So good, so easy! We used Reese's Pieces instead of M&Ms to up the peanut butter ante and it was fantastic!

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.

Being a diabetic, this recipe did NOT cause me any problems. Everything is fine in moderation.
