"My mom made these while I was growing up, and now I make them for my family. Always a favorite at Christmas parties too! Easy to make. Recommend to keep squares in fridge right up until serving."

Only problem I had with these is it says bring to a boil. I went with a to long of a boil I guess cause they came out harder then chewy. These was still good an I barely had time to steal a coup...

These are so good. My teenage boys tore them up.

I made these to use up some cereal and my family loved these bars! Even my granddaughter, who hates peanuts, has requested an encore. Thanks for sharing!!

I used honey bunches of oats with almonds instead of the corn flake cereal, and omitted the nuts. I added some M&Ms as well! Yum!!

Great alternative to store bought bars. I added 5 cups of cereal each and cashews not peanuts.(the first time I made them they were a little rich) Delicious!

Sooo easy! You can put just about any nut, dried fruit, chocolate chip combination you want in it. First time I followed recipe to a tee... delicious. Second time, I put a large bag of trail mix...

found them a little too sweet. I plan to make them again with less sweetener.

So good and so easy. You really can personalize this quite a bit - add chocolate chips, or pretzels, or use almonds instead of peanuts, or other nuts - really good!
