I make these often for team snacks, my daughter expects them for games!I use a little less Cheerios (3 1/2 c.)I use a little more corn syrup (1 1/4 c.)Quickly add the cereal to the syrup mix, add 1/2 the cereal, mix fast, add the rest of the cereal. I use a 9X13 pan, line with foil, and lift it all out to cut into bars.

I agree with the 2 previous post... mine usually doesn't stick together either. Anymore, I don't even bother to try to make "bars" - I just make it a "mix". And it taste WONDERFUL and it is VERY ADDICTING. It has been one of our favorites for many years & I always get request for the recipe. (Tip: use seasonal M&M's during various holidays to be festive.)

Great taste...not enough syrup, peanut butter mixture. Mine was very dry. Total flop. Did not stick together at all.
