Cereal Treats I

Recipe by  

"This version has no chocolate topping, but it would be easy to melt chocolate chips and spread them over the top. We have a nut allergy in our family and I omit the peanut butter and substitute 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips melted with the margarine instead."

I made these with Honey Nut Cheerios. They were good but my husband, kids, and I liked the No Bake Cereal Cookies from this site better. When using Cheerios these were a little too gooey for our taste. I have made this recipe with Rice Krispies and frosted with melted chocolate and butterscotch chips and they were very good.

I'm not crazy about the peanut butter. It sort of took away from the sweetness of the snack. I made them both with and without the peanut butter and the one's without were definitely better, but still not as good as rice crispy treats. (just proves again, you can't beat the real thing!)

I generously sprayed the bowl with cooking spray before I put anything in it. It made clean up a breeze. These are delicious!

I used Rice Krispies for this, and they turned out great! It was so much easier than using the corn syrup version I've seen other places. I also melted 1 cup of chocolate chips for 'icing'. I would probably use 1.5 cups next time. Very quick, easy, and delicious!

A 71/2x12 inch pan gave me thicker bars, which I prefer. This recepie is great for stale, leftover boxes of unused cereal! Unfortuantely, cleaning the bowl and utensils is a pain in the sink, but well worth it! lol

This is a good healthy snack to make to bring to work, except my husband ate most of them on the weekend.

This is a yummy, quick, easy snack to make with the kids. We used corn flakes and also added a chocolate chip icing!!
