Chef's Notes

You can use Corn Flakes, Cheerios, Rice Krispies, or any cereal with a crunch.


  1. I also tried this recipe with cheerios and loved it! You do need to cut it right after you put it in the pan though. I have a lot of kids to babysit. And it is a good healthy snack. We love it!! I also left off the frosting.
  2. This is the same recipe that my mom always made for us a kids. She would use rice krispies and corn flakes together and then drop onto wax paper or any nonstick surface. This gives you individual servings and nothing to cut - very easy!
  3. Very good! Melted a handful of chocolate chips and sprinkled on top. Like a reeces pb cup:)
  4. Made these with Multigrain Cheerios and crunchy pb...yummy! I also made another batch in which I used Wheat Chex(3 cups) and Rice Chex(3 cups). I added Raisins and Cinnamon along with crunchy pb...these were very good!
  5. A staple for the "I don't like marshamllows" crowd Easily adaptable to whatever you have on hand 5 stars

  7. I was looking for a quick treat for our family game night and these hit the spot. They only took about 5 minutes to make. I would say they need about 10 or 15 minutes to cool by my family couldn't wait that long. They are very good when they're gooey. I used Corn Flakes - Read more ...
  8. Wow! These are very good and I love how quick they are. I did use cheerios instead of rice krispies. I also brought the corn syrup to a boil before adding in the sugar to prevent the hardness that others talked about. I made some with melted chocolate chips on top and some with raisins - Read more ...
  9. I make this recipe all the time and use "cheerios" instead of rice cereal. I have never had them turn out hard and I think it's because once the sugars come to a boil I add the PB immediately and take the mixture off the heat right away. If it boils too long the sugar - Read more ...
