These were very easy to make and I actually made 24 slightly smaller muffins with these amounts. I liked the muffins but the cereal tended to be chewy when cooked in the muffin which is not to everyone's tastes and I also found that they weren't very sweet so they really needed a frosting for maximum impact. I used chocolate buttercream and I also added some extra chocolate chips. The kids loved them!
