    These are so decandent. They're a snap to prepare and my hubby gave them rave reviews when I made them around Christmas time. I forgot to save the recipe in my cookbook. Thanks to Diana #2 for posting it as one of her "thank-you" recipes for the Kraft Hockeyville competition, it is back in my hands. Can't wait to surprise dh with a batch. Diana, the picture looks as good as these taste.

    Gerry, these go together like lightening. Good thing too cause they will disappear just as fast. Billy called this 'Voting Food'. These are really wonderful little treats. I love the mixture of cereals and of course the peanut butter. I was quite surprised, they weren't as sweet as I would have thought. The only change I made was to drizzle chocolate over the top once they were cut. Isn't there a law somewhere that you can't have peanut butter without chocolate? :) Honoured to make this as a "Thank You" for voting for Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia in the 2010 Kraft Hockeyville Competition.

    Totally addictive !! I had to add in some oats too as i was down to the last of the other cereals but the combo worked well !!
