I was looking for a recipe to use up old stale marshmallows and some chocolate rice cereal, and I really liked this! I must confess, I used regular peanut butter, regular butter, regular chocolate chips, and I only had 3 cups of cereal. So I don't think I made a low-fat or low-calorie treat, but I loved the peanut butter with the chocolate.
These were just ok for us. I only had 5 cups of cereal , but went ahead and used the regular amount of everything else called for. I'm glad I did or I never would've had enough coating. There is very very little peanut butter flavor to these , kind of like a "why bother" if you can't taste it type things. I guess if you were doing the WW thing , you would be happy to have a low point crunchy sweet, we just didn't care for them all that much. Sorry Kittencal!! Thanks for posting it though! :)
