Cereal bars


My girls get tired of just rice crispy treats. So a few years ago I found (or made up) a recipe using Cheerios. I have made any different versions with all types of cereal. These are peanut butter cereal bars.

1/4 cup margarine/butter

1/2 cup peanut butter

10 oz of marshmallow

6 cups of cereal (I used Honey Nut Cheerios)

1/2 cup chocolate chips(I used dairy free mini chips)


In a large microwave safe bowl melt butter. Do this in 30 second intervals until melted.  Stirr in peanut butter.

Add the marshmallows stir until coated with the butter and peanut butter mixture.

Next melt the marshmallows .  Do this in 30 second at one time as well. Be careful the bowl does get hot.

Once everything in smooth add the cereal. You want to go fast or as the marshmallows cool they are harder to work with.

Add the chocolate chip. They will melt slightly giving a nice chocolate swirl.

In a 9×13 inch pan. Spray the sides and bottom with a non cooking spray. Press the cereal mixture into the pan. Sprinkle the top with more chocolate chips. Let it cool then cut into squares. I didn’t have a 9×13 pan so I used a bigger one but push it all to one side using only half the pan. Use what you got!
