Frequently Asked Questions:

            Can I use a cereal other than Fruity Rice?

I am so hooked on this one, I have yet to try any other cereal. However, I do not know why Cocoa Rice Krispies would not work, or any other cereal for that matter.

            Could I use a graham cracker crust instead?

Yes, to do so use 2 cups of crushed graham crackers, ¼ cup sugar and 2 tbsp butter, melted. Press it down using the bottom of a measuring cup. For that fact, you could use a different cereal, wafer cookies or even chocolate sandwich cookies.
