Absolutely adorable! These were a big hit with the kids (&the moms) at the football tailgate last night. I love that they require no baking & are super fast! Just make sure plenty of time for the mixture to cool before trying to shape's much easier the cooler they are. Thanks for a keeper!!

If I remember correctly, Cocoa Pebbles are more Rice Krispie shaped but we don't have them in Canada anymore so I used Nesquik cereal which are little balls. I think because of this that they didn't want to hold together well. I love that this recipe called for semi-sweet chocolate so they weren't too sweet. I did find they were a little plain until I added a handful of walnuts.
