    Very tasty! I made the mistake of using regular Baker's chocolate the first time I made it. Ugh! I tried it again with the correct chocolate and that made all the difference. It is hard to get all the cereal to stick together. More marshmallows might help.

    I have been making this recipe for about 2 years now and I have NEVER had a negative comment. Not only do my husband and I love it, but friends request it all the time as well! The only thing I change is the Semi-Sweet Chocolate, I use Milk Chocolate instead!

    Every time I go visit one of my friends he asks me to bring a sheet of this to him. It's a great recipe, one of my favourites.
