I haven't made this but would vey much like to try it. I've read the comments about it being too sweet. My take would be to definitely eliminate the sugar in the crust portion. I could never understand why sugar is added to crusts like graham cracker, etc. To me, the cookies used have enough sugar in them and sugar does not have to be added. I will tweak the recipe to my preferences.

I am looking forward to trying this, however the description shouldn't say no-bake if the instructions clearly say to bake it.

This was really easy and quick to make, but WAY TOO SWEET, even my kids were a bit turned off and that is saying something.

Just found this recipe and haven't tried it yet, but in response to Debra J re: too sweet...Could also use dark chocolate instead of milk and cut back on the brown sugar for the crust. I'd hesitate to add salt myself, due to family heart problems, but salted peanuts could work if you prefer it. :)

This is a great recipe, however, it is way TOO sweet. If I make it again, I would add some salted peanuts either 1) to the crust 2) sprinkle on top of the marshmallows or 3) mix some in with the topping. The salted peanuts would cut some of the sweetness of the treats. Another thing to cut the super sweetness would be to use regular Cheerios instead of the the sweet chocolate ones. But, all in all, this is an easy recipe and tasty...IF you like sweetness!!
