These are really easy to make very festive and are a nice balance of salty and sweet. I'd probably add a little more peanut butter next time but I really like the honey nut cereal in these. Read More

I really like this variation on a crispy rice bar! The only change I made was to double the peanut butter to 2 tablespoons which seemed to be just right. Very festive and tasty! Read More

I made these for a Halloween treat and they were simple and had a good balance of salty and sweet flavors. I would advise to eat within a few days as the cereal became stale. Read More

Such an awesome and fun treat for both kids and adults! I did add a lot more peanut butter...about 1/4 cup. Made it for Halloween and will again for Thanksgiving. Read More

These little bars were gobbled up in one evening by my husband and two teen daughters. I did add more peanut butter (probably close to 1/4 cup) which made them a little soft for cutting into bars but the taste was spot on. I didn't have candy corn so I topped it with the peanuts M&Ms and mini peanut butter cups from Trader Joe's. This is a great recipe for using up your leftover candy. I'll be making these again over the weekend for when their friends come over. Quick and easy treat. Read More
