Cereal Treats


4 cups of your favorite cereal
1/2 cup corn syrup or honey
1/2 cup peanut butter or chocolate hazelnut spread (like Nutella)
1/2 cup sugar, if using corn syrup (or if you want an added sweetness to your recipe)


Line an 8 or 9-inch square baking pan with plastic wrap.
Pour cereal into a large bowl.
In medium saucepan, combine sugar & corn syrup.
Stir occasionally and bring to a boil over medium heat; boil 1 minute.
Remove from heat.
Stir in peanut butter until smooth.
Pour over cereal; stir to coat.
Press evenly into prepared pan.
Cool about 15 to 20 minutes Invert onto cutting board; remove plastic wrap. Cut into bars. (Or you can drop by the teaspoon on wax paper instead of placing into pan).
(For microwave directions, Prepare pan in step 1 as above.
In 2 quart microwavable bowl, combine sugar, corn syrup & peanut butter. Microwave on high, stirring twice, 3 1/2 to 4 minutes or until mixture is smooth and sugar has dissolved. Complete as in step 7 and on).
(You can also drizzle melted chocolate over cereal bars or make a flavored glaze and drizzle over bars, the possibilities are up to you! Have fun!).
For non Apian Vegetarians/Vegans do not use the honey. Ask before making if you are making this for a gift to be sure they consume honey.
