Recipe from Cooking Light

These no-bake bars come together quickly with common pantry ingredients. Make sure the cereal is well crushed (try packing it in a sealed zip-top plastic bag and using a rolling pin) so it incorporates into the peanut butter mixture.

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup light-colored corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) chopped lightly salted, dry-roasted peanuts
  • 3 1/2 cups (4 ounces) whole-grain flaked cereal (such as Total), finely crushed
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup (2 ounces) chopped dark chocolate

Preparation

  1. 1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook 4 minutes or just until mixture begins to boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in peanuts and cereal. Spread mixture evenly into a 13 x 9–inch baking pan coated with cooking spray.
  2. 2. Place the dark chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until chocolate melts, stirring every 20 seconds. Drizzle chocolate evenly over peanut mixture. Score into 36 bars while warm.
