The flavour of chocolate, raisins, nuts, oats, and cereal is enhanced with the addition of marshmallow, which makes these baked bars dense and ooey chewy good! Altered from Taste Of Home Jun/July 04.

These weren't quite what I was looking for. They seem really cakey, then turn very hard after baking. The taste was okay, but I moved on to another recipe, http://www.food.com/recipe/no-bake-granola-bars-60235.
Fun to eat and make! I like the chewy texture...I only baked mine for 10 minutes as I even thought they tasted good un-baked (like a rice crispie treat). I added almonds instead of peanuts and left out the raisins. Definitely will be making these again.
These are great little snackies. I missed the whole bake in a 9x9 pan instruction and used a 13x9 pan. Still thought they baked up fine, just a little thinner than most granola bars, lol. I subbed dried apricots for the raisins and cashews for the peanuts. I will make these again. Much cheaper than store bought :). Made for the Babes of ZWT4.
