Yet another version of my 1 Minute, No Bake, Cereal Bar and 1 Minute, No Bake, Cocoa Delicacy. This one sets up firmer than the other two and is less sweet.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 biscuits shredded wheat cereal (or 1 1/2 cups crushed)
  • 1 cup instant oats
  • 14 cup cocoa powder, sifted
  • 13 cup brown sugar, loosely packed
  • 13 cup honey or 13 cup corn syrup
  • 14 cup peanut butter (or other seed or nut butter, sunflower is particularly good in this recipe)
  • 14 cup orange juice (or other liquid)

Directions

  1. Line a tiny cookie sheet with waxed paper or greased plastic wrap that is twice as long as the sheet.
  2. In package, crush the Shredded Wheat. Combine with oats and cocoa.
  3. In a small saucepan, bring brown sugar, corn syrup, peanut butter and orange juice to a rolling boil. Without stirring or reducing heat, boil for 1 minute.
  4. Immediately add cereal/cocoa mixture. Stir until evenly coated.
  5. Pour onto prepared cookie sheet and fold the rest of the paper over top; pack firmly using a rolling pin or hands (be careful, the mix in very hot).
  6. Cool coompletly. Cut into rectangles, squares, triangles, roll into bite-size balls, or use sharp cookie cutters to cut into shapes.
  7. Keep refrigerated.

These are like a cross between no bake cookies and granola bars. My kids love them! They are asking for seconds as I type!
