Very simple and fun for my kids! To add chocolate chips so they would not melt, I had the kids press the mixture into the pan and let it set a minute. I let them sprinkle a few chips on top of the cereal and press them in with the back of a sprayed spatula.

This is the recipe I use except that I often stir one-third cup of peanut butter (crunchy is best) into the melted marshmallows before adding the Cheerios (I use multi-grain Cheerios). So much more flavor---and healthier---than the old rice cereal treats!
