    We've made this recipe twice in the past week and have made a few changes but received rave reviews. We used all crispy rice cereal and substituted the peanuts for shredded coconut. We used half chocolate and half white chocolate chips and my grandmother added a stick of maragarine to the corn syrup mixture. These were devoured in less than 24 hours.

    Kids LOVED them! Omitted the peanuts and substituted honey for corn syrup. Very delicious!  -  08 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a very good, somewhat healthy, easy recipe. The oat cereal, peanuts and peanut butter add nutrients and that is a plus in my book. I used more cereal and less chocolate. I also added 1/2 stick of butter to the corn syrup and used 1/2 cup less peanut butter. I think this made it easier to mix. The end result was a very good cereal bar.  -  24 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
