  • Using a knife dipped in water, spread the melted marshmallows evenly over cake.

  • Remove from heat; stir in cereal.
  • Immediately spread over bars.

Notes

When I saw these on Good Eats 'n Treats I knew I had to try them. They are worth making. Next time I will add more peanut butter to them.
