Chocolate-Peanut Butter Crispies

I love this recipe because there's very little cooking and kids can help make them. There are some major decisions to make before starting[ though-regular rice cereal or chocolate rice cereal, plus the really big decision - creamy or crunchy peanut butter. Marriages have nearly broken up over this one so choose wisely and consult the whole family before proceeding. You can substitute other cereals too, if you have a cupboard full of miscellaneous. ends of cereal boxes like I tend to have.]
