Recipe by thedixongang

Crunchy, sweet & salty and ready in a flash! More of a desert bar than a breakfast item.

Top Review by AZPARZYCH

These bars are a good combo of sweet, salty and gooey. Made with a combo of rice and corn Chex, 3/4 peanuts and the rest of the ingredients as written. Took to family dinner night with our friends and everyone loved them. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
