Nuts for Nerds

We usually make these plain but we've been experimenting with different toppings. My boys loved the colorful Nerds on top! These are also a hit for school functions and bake sales.



This is an excellent recipe. I cant find this kind of bar in Taiwan , and since I couldnt control myself not to think about the taste and the flaovr of it.. I have to make it by myself. I use corn flake instead, and it works fine as well... thx for the recipe
