With a soak in the hot tub and a good nights sleep the hubby is happy again and later in the summer when all those pretty flowers are a bloomin, he will be happy he went along with my ideas!
On to the recipe: I can't remember which blog I got this recipe, but I did change it up from the original. These are a great snack for the long summer days and besides the corn syrup in them, they are somewhat healthy! The kids can help make these and you don't have to turn on your oven and make the kitchen all hot.
No bake snack bars
2C rice krispies
1C corn syrup
11/2C peanut butter
optional: add raisins,crasins,peanuts
In a big bowl, mix together cherrios, rice krispies, and m&m's (and any optional ingredients). Set aside. In a saucepan, cook sugar and corn syrup until it boils and mix until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Pour over cereal mixture and mix well. Grease a 15x10x1 and spread into pan, or into a 13x9 for thicker bars. Let cool and cut.
|Use seasonal M&M's to be festive with the colors!|
