We love an afternoon treat and when we can incorporate a breakfast ingredient, even better. These sticky ooey gooey balls with Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch cereal! It's simple to make and within a few minutes you're biting into a mix of marshmallows, caramel and dark chocolate.

6 Cups Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch cereal
