Quick, easy, low mess, pretty good! I used chex instead of cheerios, it worked well!

i did this as a layer over precut brownies-- was tasty! if you don't have m&ms, try using whole unmelted chocolate chips. it looks kind of unsophisticated though when you bite into it and disc...

WE LOVE THIS! If you love peanut butter & Cocoa flavor this is it. After you melt Cocoa & PB pour into a big bowl with the other ingredients you'll need alot of room to mix.

Yummy, fast, and easy for the kids to help put together!
