"These are terrific!"

MY REVIEW

"Is there a reason why you use corn chex and not any other chex? I would think rice chex would be good because of the crispness."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 29, 2013

"Such an easy, colorful and tasty recipe. Like Rice Crispie Treats all dressed up! I wanted to have a few fallback kids friendly treat recipes before school starts and this one fits the bill. Will make again for sure."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 28, 2012

"I've made this recipe several times and we all love it (especially my granddaughter!). It's very easy. My only caution is that I always use a smaller pan - the bars seem much too thin if put in a 9x13 pan."
