I just made these with Cheerios and using a jar of marshmallow creme I'd had on my shelf since the holidays last year (use it to make fudge).. so, yeah, I killed 2 birds with one stone. My hubby will be thrilled with the treat. I will just serve them plain, but gives me ideas for other holidays! Easier than I remember (I used an 8x8 pan to make them thicker).
