    1. Oh no! I cannot find the HighKey “rice shaped/ style” cereal anywhere! Do you have a source that I’m missing? Thank you for ALL you do for us! Your recipes are ALL WINNERS!!

      1. They stopped making it! Which is so sad because it’s the only company that was making “rice” cereal. I put a link for a substitute but they are “O” shaped.

    2. Actually rice Crispies has the same amount of carbs. I prefer using that in the recipe as I found the Frosted High Key cereal made the squares overly sweet. I prefer treats to be less sweetened.
