My mom made these while I was growing up, and now I make them for my family. Always a favorite at Christmas parties too! Easy to make. Recommend to keep squares in fridge right up until serving.

Only problem I had with these is it says bring to a boil. I went with a to long of a boil I guess cause they came out harder then chewy. These was still good an I barely had time to steal a couple for the picture. The only thing was I wish it had more coating and was chewy. Next time I plan on doubling the sauce an not cooking it as long make them a bit chewier.

I made these to use up some cereal and my family loved these bars! Even my granddaughter, who hates peanuts, has requested an encore. Thanks for sharing!!
