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 couple for the picture. The only thing was I wish it had more coating and was chewy. Next time I plan on doubling the sauce an not cooking it as long make them a bit chewier.

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!

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!
