The ratio of sweetness to the peanut butter and chocolate combination made even stale Cheerios great! Although best when used with a flake cereal, these will be very good with any cereal you have on hand. Easy to make and turned out great. Tip: Don't forget to spray your measuring cup with cooking spray-- the syrup and peanut butter will easy come out of the cup.

I have made these yummies for years and called them "Rice Krispie Goodies" (or kipsie boodies as my little ones and now big ones call them!) and they are terrific. These days I would use the most grainy cereal and sneak in some nutrition into these bad boys.

I substituted corn flakes for the Special K since that is what I had on hand. I used 8 cups of crushed corn flakes instead of 6 cups. I would do this again and try different cereals.

So easy to make. Very rich and gooey. Everyone wants the recipe. I used Special K with Almonds and that added a little more punch. L. Sheley, Billings,MT
