"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."
"Quick, easy, delicious! :)"
"Your Grandma's recipe to the rescue! I am snowed in here in the Mo. hills and craving a brownie! Unfortunately I don't have all the ingredients. What to do? I had the ingredients for this recipe on hand and it was a hit. My two year old and I couldn't wait for it to cool before we indulged! Satisfying and I feel a little less guilty since it's Cheerios and I used organic PB! Thanks for sharing."
"This was very fast and easy to make. I had to use some honey along with the Karo syrup to make 2/3 cup and it worked fine. I used honey-nut cheerios and added about half a bag of milk chocolate chips (I did a double recipe overall) and it came out very well. Very popular! A great, easy, quick treat that's even vaguely healthy, if you consider it has peanut butter and cheerios are whole grain. Thanks!"
"These are very easy to make. I thought I had pressed them together hard enough but they still fell apart as you ate them. It might be the humidity but the next time I make these I'll cook the mixture for 2-3 minutes after it starts to bubble. I made this for * Zaar Cookbooks Tag* game 2008"
"I love these!! So quick and easy and fabulous taste. I used honey nut cheerios and only used 5 cups because it was getting hard to stir it all together. Thanks for this delicious treat!"
"If you need a quick, easy "cookie", this is the 1 for you. I halved the recipe and made a 9" pan. I also added a handful of mini chocolate chips (which kind of melted when I stirred them in). We ate half the pan when I first cut them.... so I'd say they're a success. I'll make these again when I need to use up Cheerios."
"This is definatly a keeper!! Too easy!! I made it with a mix of Cheerios and Coco puffs! Love that choco-peanutbutter mix!!! Kids ate it up!! Thanks!"
"These are really good. Super fast and easy to put together with a totally different taste from regular quick bar cookies. I used sucanat (unrefined cane sugar) in place of the brown sugar and added a few handfuls of mini m&ms. The chocolate flavor was a nice complement. I was making a care package for my daughter's preschool teacher who had to travel 2 hours today to be with her terminally ill husband. These were fast and looked pretty. Thanks!"
