Rated as 4.47 out of 5 Stars

"'I often make a big batch of these peanut butter-flavored cereal bars on days that I don't want to heat up the kitchen,' relates Jane Thompson of Eureka, Illinois. 'Kids especially love them, so they're great for picnics, potlucks and school bake sales.'"

These were good. I'll probably try to come up with a slightly healthier version that has more pretzels and dry roasted peanuts would be a good addition.
