  1. These were so easy to make and delicious! Having made rice krispies the same way, the key is to not over cook your syrup and sugar! Over cooking leads to rock hard cookies!

  2. Very Good. I remember these from when I went to Indiana University in Bloomington and would get them at the Student Union between classes. They taste better if you add 1/2 cup more cereal. Make sure you use good quality peanut butter.
  3. These are my favorite treat! I have used an array of cereals for this recipe but have found that Golden Grahams are my ultimate favorite in this recipe!

  9. My grandmother used to make this our family was surprised when I made it... we love them
