WOW! Super easy and very yummy! I also just spread them on a pan to chill and then will break up into smaller pieces, if the vultures (teenagers) let them last that long!

My four year old and I just finished making these. They're super easy and so good! We will definitely make these again when the candy cravings hit.

These taste great and are easy to make. Making them in the mini muffin liners only gave me 26 pieces-filling them less looked silly. Maybe next time I will spread in a pan and cut into squares.

Can anyone tell me if this is 1 (one) package each of milk chocolate and peanut butter chips, or one package of some sort of combined milk chocolate and peanut butter chip? Please send email to Thanks!

I've made this recipe for years, typically at Christmas time. My only variations are that I typically line a jellyroll pan with foil and pour the finished batter on the pan. After cooling I cut the candy into pieces. It saves time and makes for a more uniform presentation. I also have used a 16-oz package of milk-chocolate candy bark instead of the chips. I typically heat this in the microwave for a couple minutes, then add the remaining ingredients, adjusting the cereal and peanut butter to taste. You really can't mess this recipe up. It is so easy and flexible. My kids gobble these up and request to make them every year.
