1 Minute, No Bake, Chocolatey Cereal Bites

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by Geniale Genie

Yet another version of my 1 Minute, No Bake, Cereal Bar and 1 Minute, No Bake, Cocoa Delicacy. This one sets up firmer than the other two and is less sweet.

These are like a cross between no bake cookies and granola bars. My kids love them! They are asking for seconds as I type!
