    This was a fun and easy recipe to do with my daughter. She was so excited that we had to keep reminding her they need to brown just a little bit to ensure the crispiness like the cereal. Once she was able to try a few she was on cloud nine! Thank you for the kid friendly and easy recipe, we will be making more!
