This was very good and very simple. I ended up substituting the brown sugar with honey and the Karo syrup with molasses, but it still came out amazing! Definitely something I plan to experiment more with in the future. Thanks for the recipe!

I followed the recipe completely except after they had cooled I melted a bag of chocolate chips and a bag of butterscotch chips and frosted them with the molten deliciousness....these were a big hit with my work people....thank you sooo much Grandma Good!!!

Yummy! I ran short on corn syrup so used about half honey in its place.

i too thought they were wonderful -- i used splenda brown sugar so it was not a sugar overload and let them cool in the same pot (analon) that i made them in -- they were so simple and easy to make -- thanks for sharing

Hands down excellent. We were looking for a late night treat with a limited pantry and even more limited grocery store hours, and this hit the spot! The recipe worked perfectly as written. I do recommend cutting them as soon as they are cool, however - the longer they sit, the firmer they get and the harder it will be to cut through them. A great recipe that we'll definitely be making again! Now I have an excuse to keep a box of Cheerios on hand.

I love Cheerios but have a hard time eating any cereal for breakfast so usually have it in the evening. I used Sugar Free Syrup, non Karo and brown sugar blend splenda and these were fantastic. Being diabetic I really wanted to try this but wanted to make it in a way that I could enjoy it without guilt. It worked. This was for Pack Spring '07 and I am glad that I picked this recipe.

Wonderful and so easy! Gone in no time, most before they cooled completely. So much better than the type with marshmallows which get so gooey and soft. Do follow the directions and press firmly in the pan. I wouldn't change a thing! Thanks, Kaake, for sharing your grandmother's recipe!

just made these with soy wonder soy butter (peanut butter substitute for nut nut allergies). very nice! also, i think the soy butter may be less-sugary than p'butter so these were not overly sweet, and they had a nice toasty flavor.

I thought these were very easy, and very tastey, however, for whatever reason, mine do not stay molded together. When I cut them into bars they crumble apart in my hands. Other than that though, I really like them, and will still make them again.

These are great! I don't know if I used too many Cheerios, or if the bars are supposed to be really thick-like. I like how they aren't so sweet. I thought it would be overwhelming since there is almost 2 cups of sugar in the recipe. I even added about a 1/4 pkg of chocolate chips right to the top of the bars. To soften the chips, I put waxed paper over the top.
