Don’t really know what it is about them- but I really can’t get enough. I have missed them so much since she passed but have never made them myself.
I have been craving things that bring back fond memories. SO I finally decided to make these (with my own twist) & share them with you.
Here are some commonly asked questions
What kind of cany bar do you use for this?
Can this recipe be made with milk or semi-sweet chocolate?
Yes, you can create these with another kind of chocolate. They probably won’t look as pretty because you won’t see the color of the cereal coming through the chocolate in the same way. But I can say that they will be just as delicious.
