Pour this heavenly melted chocolate into the large mixing bowl with the cereal mixture and stir well to combine. Scoop out portions using a tablespoon and place them onto the prepared baking sheet in bite-sized mounds. Finally, refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until your Snack-a-Saurus Bites are firm and set.
