A wonderful treat. My family loves these and they are great for a potluck or any occasion.

Very good. Simple to make. I was out of clean saucepans so I melted the topping ingredients in the mircowave. That worked great. Like one of the other reviewers, I didn't bother spreading the marshmallow. I used Rice Chex instead of Rice Krispies. Forgot to add the cereal before spreading the topping so I just crumbled it and spread it on top. Not pretty, but still tastes good! :)
