absolutely love this - I added more peanut butter and made into drop cookies! simple and so delicious!! thank you!
Made to take on a boat trip, easy and such a great snack. Everyone loved this!
Perfect snack bar! I made these for a teacher appreciation luncheon and the pan came home without a crumb left! Based on their reviews they loved the combination of the rice cereal with the Cheerios. I used dark chocolate M&M's. Worked out great - very simple to make. Thanks Sweets! Made for Went to the Market Tag Game May 2008
A wonderful snack bar! We all loved them - not just the kids! I used crunchy peanut butter because that's what I had on hand and used Hershey's Milk Chololate Chips instead of the M&M's (they were BOGO this week). I let the mixture cool slightly before adding them and they melted when I stirred them in, which was no problem as I was expecting them to. Chocolatey, crispy, chewy and peanuty - what's not to love?! Thanks for sharing! Made for March Bev. Tag '08.
What a great little bar that my DS's and DH love. I'm guessing that it's the M&M's.;-) I also cut the recipe down to fit in a 9x13 and also used peanut M&M's. But like you mentioned can be versatile enough to add most anything. When I see that it came from an Amish Cookbook I knew it would be awesome as they seem to always get it right~ Thanks Sherry.

So yummy!!! I used the recipe amounts for the dry ingredients (Cheerios through M&Ms) but used 1 1/2 cups corn syrup and sugar, 2 cups peanut butter and 2 tsp vanilla. This took care of the "falling apart" problem. ;) I had to hold myself back from eating the whole pan! Thanks for sharing this great recipe, SL! :)
After cutting this recipe down and the cereal mixture down these came out great. I combined the liquids in the microwave to make these even more easy to make. Great no make bar!
While these were very tasty, they certainly weren't bars. They completely fell apart. I did use my own combo of 6 cups Cheerios (4 multi grain, 2 berry burst), 2 cups Corn Pops, 2 cups granola, but otherwise I did it just as stated. Maybe I didn't cool them enough, though they weren't hot for even my 18 month old?
