We had chocolate rice cereal on hand and "yummy" did it add some great flavor. We WILL be making this again.

Not only are these easy and fun to make with your children, there great to get rid of leftover halloween candy! Don't have butterfingers? Use another candy bar or whatever you have on hand!

My kids loved these. My daughter doesn't like peanut butter and even she ate them up. We'll definitely make these again.

This is a great change to an old time favorite. Kids and adult alike have enjoyed this one. It has become a favorite to make for my college student, doesn't last long at the dorm.

Great twist on an old favorite!!!

These were soooo easy to make! We love Rice Krispie treats in our house. I have done so many different things to them in the past (such as using red food coloring and cutting out heart shapes or green coloring for shamrocks), but this was GREAT!!! I just made them and they are cooling (almost ready and everyone has already started picking at them!!
