      Absolutely superb sweet and salty square, great texture of soft and crunchy! Just a tad on a too sweet side, next time will try 1 1/4 cup sugar only, see if it still sets the same.

      What a unique square! I really liked the contrast of the crunchy cereal layer & the smooth fudge layer. These are very sweet, though, so you can cut them into small squares.

      This bar was right up my husbands alley. I used colored mini marshmellows as that's all I had on hand. That didn't seem to make a differance though. It's a keeper. :)
