I'm a sucker for anything with cereal and chocolate. Case in point. Thankfully, I wisely decided to share and took the entire batch of these with me to church as my contribution to after-service refreshments. Okay, I admit, I ate a few for breakfast...but the rest were gobbled up by everyone else, I promise! While I don't quite see the resemblance between these and a baby ruth candy bar, these were delicious in their own right. If you too love cereal and chocolate, I suggest you make these sooner than later...and don't feel like you have to share ;)
