I was wondering how you got your chocolate to melt so nicely.

 Here in the Midwest, I've mostly heard them called Scotcharoos, but they usually make them with Rice Krispies. A little too sweet for me, but other people love 'em.

I am betting that this would be good with something like Cheerios too.

My mom made these for us as a special treat. I always wondered how to make them. Thanks for sharing!

Wow, those sound great.  Of course the fact that I'm really hungry right now might have something to do with it.  :)
