These are sinfully delicious!!! I cut the recipe in 1/2 and in no time had these made. I cut them small as I knew they would be rich and got 30 squares out of an 8x11 inch baking pan. Perfect little bar for the hot time of year when you want something sweet but don't feel like baking.

My boys really liked this treat....I think it was all the cereal and I liked it because I used up the last bits of cereal in the boxes. I did cut the recipe in half and it still made a lot of cookies. Made for Photo Tag.
