Expert Tips

Keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

I love these bars! Whenever I prepare something for my children I like to add ingredients that will add something tasty, but also have nutritious ingredients. This recipe for Cheerios™ Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bars is the perfect example. They love them because the first thing they see is the chocolate, but they don't notice the Cheerios™, oatmeal and peanut butter. This is the only way they eat oats. A mother should make use of every trick, right? Enjoy!

Directions

  • 1 Cover and 8x8 dish in parchment paper. Set aside.
  • 2 Mix the oats, Cheerios™, pretzels and mini chocolates in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • 3 Melt the butter, honey, peanut butter, brown sugar and vanilla in a medium pot over medium heat. Let boil, reduce the heat to low and cook for 2-3 minutes, stir constantly.
  • 4 Pour the mixture over the dry ingredients and serve with a wooden spoon until everything is well combined.
  • 5 Place the mixture in the bowl and apply pressure firmly to compact and even out the surface.
  • 6 Refrigerate for 45-50 minutes before cutting.
