Pretty much any cereal works fine for cereal squares, although if a cereal is too sweet (say you're being begged to try them with Cookie Crunch) you can cut the sweetness with a neutral like Rice Krispies or Cheerios.
The basic recipe is 2 tablespoons of butter and 10 oz of marshmallows melted on the stove, add 6 cups of cereal. This recipe fills about an inch in the bottom of a 9x13, and can be cut in pretty much any size square, rectangle, or cookie cutter shape. Using cookie cutters can be fun if the treats are going to be given away-- it leaves lots of scraps for the kids (and you!) to eat.
