I have always loved these since I was a kid. I like to mix and match cereals. One of my favorites is 1/2 rice krispies and 1/2 fruity pebbles. I also like to fill the middle. You just separate the recipe. Press half into a lightly greased 8x8 pan then spread with whatever filling you prefer. You can do peanut butter chocolate chips jam frosting whatever sounds good. Then press the second half over carefully. This is a really fun recipe to play with so get creative. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar add sprinkles or your favorite candy or use cookie cutters and make shapes. I really like the sushi idea. Very cute! Today I made them with a variety of cereal I had on hand. I did two cups of each Rice Krispies Cheerios and Kix. My kids love them and when I make them with whole grain cereals it turns out to be a very healthy treat! Tips for the stickiness: Lightly spray your spatula knife cookie cutters and hands with a butter cooking spray. This will make it much easier to spread cut and handle the treats! Thanks for the basic recipe! Read More

I made these with Frosted Flakes Gold cereal and it just didn't taste right. I think it would have been much better with rice cereal. Read More

was cleaning out the pantry and used all sorts of cereal mixed together with great results (wheat chex, kashi go lean, kashi good friends, toasted oats, rice crispies). I also added a heading 1/2 cup shredded coconut to it - YUM! As I was mixing in the cereal it seemed like I could add more and still be ok so I added about 3/4 cup more cereal and it mixed in fine. Love that I can use up all those bottom of the barrel cereal boxes from the pantry in one treat. Read More

My mom told me about a recipe she came across making candy sushi PURE FUN and it was the absolute hit of the Halloween party (all adults mind you). Fruit rolls fish candies and anything that looks like sushi go for it! Butter your hands frequently-maybe not the best project for little hands as the treats need to be warm and it's so sticky. Yes I got ill eating candy while I rolled. Read More

Since it said any cereal was fine I used the natural food kind of rice cereal which might have made it less sweet than it could have been. I stirred in chocolate chips at the end so that made up for it. My parents didn't like them very much (or so they said though I caught them sneaking some) and they're really sticky which is why I took a star off. Other than that they're a good quick treat.

This was exactly the recipe I was looking for to get rid of a box of cheerios that nobody wanted to eat. I added some milk chocolate chips as well. It came out not as sticky as I thought it would and not too sweet. I'll definately keep this in mind when I need to use up cereal again. Read More

The gummi sushi idea was a big hit! I used less butter (about 4 Tbs.) and added 6 cups of rice cereal to make mine. Loved them! Read More

These were so good. I made a batch for my daughter and I yesterday afternoon and they were gone in the next hour. I didn't use the full 1/4 cup of butter...more like 3 tbls. Will definitely make again. Read More

Very versatile recipe! For rice cereal though I'd either add more cereal or less marshmallows. The treats were very tough - enough to make my jaw hurt yet I kept eating them LOL! I used a non-stick pot to melt the marshmallow on the stove top. Made cleaning sooo easy. Read More
