I went looking for these on the net when I couldn't find one of my favorite candy bars locally. These are almost as good as the originals!

My daughter and I made these together. We had such a good time and she absolutly loved them and wants to make them again as soon as the first batch is gone which I am afraid will be very very soon now. I am thinking that maybe next time, I might add a thin layer of melted and cooled chocolate on top or dip them in melted chocolate after cutting and allowing the chocolate to set. I am also considering adding a layer of caramel before the chocolate coating. These are going to be fun to play with.

Great recipe! I added this into my holiday goodie basket and this was by far everyone's (including mine) favorite! After pressing the mixture into the pan I melted some caramel and drizzled over the top. Hmmmm! It was absolutley wonderful! Thank you for the great recipe!

Divine. I took Karen's suggestions and added melted caramels and chocolate to the top of this. There's nothing better than crunchy, chewy, gooey and chocolate, all rolled into one! I used a Chex style cereal instead of flakes, since it's what I had on hand. This is going into my personal Favorite Recipes book!
