    I add chocolate chips to the top once it is spread into the pan. Always a crowd-pleaser. I have made these at least 50 times :) It's also easier to cut them when they are still warm!.

    These are listed in a link for Gluten Free Cookies. These are NOT gluten free. Rice Krispies contain MALT which has gluten in it.

    This recipe is so GREAT everyone at work and my family love it. I also melt choco chips and put on top. and @ Gayda you can freeze them and just take out as you want to eat them. I keep some in my freezer :)

    Instead of Corn Syrup, use honey, agave nectar, real maple syrup. I usually use about half honey and half maple syrup. Never ever put marshmallows in this recipe!! And I agree to cut the sugar in half, and I usually use 2 cups of peanutbutter. -- it's just easier to remember that way. 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup honey, 2 cup PB, 4 cups cereal. You could use corn flakes, rice crispies, cheerios, or your favorite plain cereal too.

    This is a solid recipe but it is WAYY WAY WAY too sweet. I cut the sugar in half the second time.

    These are easy and taste great. I had been looking for this recipe - used to eat it when I was a kid. Corn syrup or marshmallows - it's dessert - ENJOY ! :) I enjoy the show and would love to have the Mad Hungry cookbook on iPad.

    I followed this recipe and it is fantastic! My old recipe calls for marshmallows and it isn't nearly so good. These are chewy, and delicious, not dry and crunchy.

    marshmallows would work instead of corn syrup.. and it keeps it traditional!
