I have been crazy busy and have totally neglected my family on sweets and dinners for that matter!!  The girl has basketball camp this week and needed a dessert for her lunch. These cereal bars are super easy and delish!!

This Recipe is from one of my favorite sites, Barefeet in the Kitchen .  Her website and facebook page, (facebook link) are always full of fabulous recipes and the best thing about her site is it’s “real” and she offers MANY Gluten Free options!!!  Please take a minute to visit her site as I know you will find something you like!!

These yummy chocolatey peanut butter bars are definitely a hit in our house and so easy.  I have made them in the past and added many different items such as: raisins, coconut flakes, peanuts, cherries (chopped), mini marshmallows, and M&M’s.

Here is the recipe how I made them:    And the link to: Barefeet in the Kitchen’s printable recipe

No Bake Chocolate Cereal Bars
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup honey
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter or almond butter
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cups corn flakes

Combine the sugar, honey and peanut butter in a large glass bowl and microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring after every thirty seconds until it is smooth and liquefied. Add the chocolate and stir again until melted.  (If the chocolate doesn’t melt into the liquid completely, just warm it another 30 seconds and stir again.) Add the cereal and stir to coat completely.

Line a 9×9 pan with parchment paper and spray the parchment paper with cooking spray or lightly rub a little butter on it.

Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of the pan. Chill in the refrigerator until firm, about 2-3 hours. Cut into strips and store in the refrigerator in an air tight container.

These won’t last long so don’t worry about how long they will keep!!
