Although I made a few changes this time, I will definitely be making this again and will try it as written. I have made a very similar recipe that calls for 6 C cereal, 2 C PB, corn syrup instead of honey, uses brown sugar instead of white, and calls for a 12oz bag of chocolate chips. It is one of my FAVORITE recipes, but is high calorie. I found this to be a much lower calorie version and just as tasty per my substitutions. Per reviews, I decided to roughly multiply recipe by 1.5. I ended up using 5 cups cereal (1 C honey nut cheerios & 4 C Alpha Bits). 1/2 C sugar based on reviews. 3/4 C honey. 1 C peanut butter (I used 1 spoonful of chunky and the rest was PB Loco Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter). I had no problems with the boiling of honey/sugar. Once it reached a boil, I let it go about 30 seconds and removed from heat. I spread in 9 x 13 pan and thought the amount was just right and I promptly placed in the fridge to set. I took out about 30-60 minutes later. These formed perfectly as bars and tasted just like my FAV recipe I mentioned above, but with the addition of honey flavor. BUT, by cutting the amount of peanut butter (from my fav version) and omitting an entire bag of chocolate chips and using chocolate PB which has the same calories as reg PB, I saved over half the calories!! I will be making these again with "normal" peanut butter and trying other flavors of PB as well. GREAT recipe - thanks!
