US Marines love these,they are great as below for shipping overseas. You can also add raisins,nuts,or other dried fruit to these but best not to during summer months as it shortens shelf life.Toffee chips are good,can also use chocolate or other flavored chips.

    Your recipe looks great but you left the peanut butter out of the nutrition analysis and therefore it appears as if it is low fat. Which it probably is not. Sorry. But still yummy I'm sure! - 5/3/10

    Excellent. Made one and then another one with different honey and cereal, plus chocolate and toffee. So fast, and easy to vary the cereal and other additions. Note that chocolate chips and toffee bits melt. Who would ever buy off-the-shelf again! - 9/22/08

  • I made these for my Marine son and his buddies who are currently deployed. He said that they are amazing. The first batch I made just the basic recipe. Tonight I made a batch and added chocolate chips and nuts. I hope he likes this batch too. - 9/11/11
