Great tasting! The recipe is great as written. To change it up a bit I will take out the marshmallows for chocolate chips or peanuts.

I used Kashi Go Lean Berry cereal - YUM!! They were a HUGE hit at the office, and I'm going to make some this weekend for the niece and nephew to send in a care package for starving college students! Follow the recipe exactly. It's perfect as-is!
