    Peanut butter and butterscotch chips yummy! However, the calories are incorrect. The ingredients show only 1 cup Kashi cereal being used. Going to make these for tomorrow! - 4/19/14

    I switched to using the Reese's peanut butter chips instead of the butterscotch ones because I found the butterscotch made them too sweet and not as much peanut butter flavor. - 4/21/14
