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!

I made this for my 19 month old and she can't seem to stop eating it! She and I can come to an agreement about healthy food and sweets with this snack.

I was really surprised at how good and very addictive this is! Made this for a long road trip and we couldn't stop eating it. Will add more nuts next time as we really loved them. Thanks for a great recipe we will make often.
