This version has no chocolate topping, but it would be easy to melt chocolate chips and spread them over the top. We have a nut allergy in our family and I omit the peanut butter and substitute 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips melted with the margarine instead.

I used Rice Krispies for this and they turned out great! It was so much easier than using the corn syrup version I've seen other places. I also melted 1 cup of chocolate chips for 'icing'. I would probably use 1.5 cups next time. Very quick easy and delicious! Read More

I'm not crazy about the peanut butter. It sort of took away from the sweetness of the snack. I made them both with and without the peanut butter and the one's without were definitely better but still not as good as rice crispy treats. (just proves again you can't beat the real thing!) Read More

I made these with Honey Nut Cheerios. They were good but my husband kids and I liked the No Bake Cereal Cookies from this site better. When using Cheerios these were a little too gooey for our taste. I have made this recipe with Rice Krispies and frosted with melted chocolate and butterscotch chips and they were very good. Read More

I generously sprayed the bowl with cooking spray before I put anything in it. It made clean up a breeze. These are delicious! Read More

A 71/2x12 inch pan gave me thicker bars which I prefer. This recepie is great for stale leftover boxes of unused cereal! Unfortuantely cleaning the bowl and utensils is a pain in the sink but well worth it! lol Read More

Yummy cross between two traditional favorites. A little more flavor than Rice Krispie bars but peanut butter flavoring is not as overpowering as Special K bars. Can substitute corn flake style cereal for the oat cereal. Kids love a cup or two of m&m's tossed in for a little chocolate flavor and some added color. Read More
