A few weeks back I made these from Pinterest:

I followed the recipe completely, and while they did look like this when I finished making them, they fell apart very easily.  I even put them in the fridge for a bit (as the recipe suggested) to firm them up, but they still didn’t stick together as well as I liked, and especially with little kids, they needed to be firm so I didn’t have pieces everywhere!  I ended up smooshing them together really hard so that they looked more like little log-shaped bars.

The verdict: the kids loved them, but I thought they were a bit too sweet and fell apart easily.  Also, even though I cut them into smaller bars, they were still a bit too big for the kids.  I am going to make them again, but this time I think I am going to roll them into balls-hopefully they will stay together better, and be a better portion size.  Also, I think I am going to cut down on the brown sugar or honey just a bit to make them a little less sweet.  They were very easy to make, and took no time at all, so this recipe is a keeper-I am just going to tweak it a bit for next time.

Also, I posted a while back about this smores snack.  A tip-I was making a bigger batch and splitting it into little baggies, but The Girlio was complaining because the marshmellows were hard (I think the cereal was taking the moisture out of them.)  So, I started packaging just the marshmellows separately, and that has been working better.
