"Try using 2 tablespoons of veg oil when you melt the chips. For peanut free, don't add the nuts or the peanut butter."

"This was very good! Next time I would use honey nut cheerios instead of the apple cinnamon. Oh, I also added ~1.5 cups of marshmallows and 1.5 bags of white chips to accommodate them."
