Recipe Comments & Reviews

this tastes wonderful and is quite easy to make. i find the powdered sugar adheres better to the cereal if added just after coating cereal with the chocolate mixture instead of refrigerating first. i also add 2 cups of powdered sugar.
This is very good! The only thing I have to say is the candy
pieces sink to the bottom if you add them after the
powdered sugar. Next time I am going to stir them in before
I put it in the fridge. Flavor is GREAT though....
