    Made these several times. My tip: Replace the 1 cup of sugar with 1 cup of chocolate chips. Otherwise WAY too sweet. The PB+chocolate makes these incredible. Also, add walnuts.

    I liked the concept of this recipe and I think it could be adapted to almost any type of cereal, but I felt like it was WAY too sweet. I would definetly cut down on the sugar used and probably just use some honey instead of the corn syrup. I also added some cinnamon which gave it a little extra something. Hope this helps, enjoy.

    I have never liked Grape-Nuts Cereal but tried this anyways and it was ok. I am not sure if I will make this again.
