I made these tonight for our Super Bowl party buffet table and they looked so cute. These were so fun and easy to put together. They tasted great, the only problem we had was they got really hard after sitting a couple hours......but they are so yummy we didn't mind. Thank you for sharing this too cute idea for the buffet table.

i made these for my super bowl party and they were a huge hit. In case your local grocery store is out of Cocoa Pebbles, Cocoa Krispies worked just as well. I also recommend using Hershey's Special Dark semi-sweet chocolate. It added a great flavor.
