Recipe by Donna M.

My children loved this crunchy, sweet snack when they were growing up. I think the recipe originally came off the back of a Cheerios box, but I'm not positive.

Yum!! My family and I loved this snack! I omitted the peanuts out of personal preference. I thought they'd turn out like bars, but they're not. Still awesome!
