I made these using Rice Krispies, frosted with some Nutella and decorated the top to look festive for the holidays. They are so delicious! It's my first time making a recipe like this so I did have a little error on my part - I think I boiled the sugar mixture on too high of a heat setting cause I followed the 3 minute rule but when I added in the peanut butter it seized up. I ended up putting the peanut butter back on the heat (low setting) and added in some butter for it to get to a more liquid state. From there I added in the cereal and was good to go. These needed to be scooped quickly cause of my error but the end result is so good I intend to make these again and hopefully won't have the same problem. Thanks for sharing.
