Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
To complete the meal. Lorri whips up a pan of Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars. "These chewy cereal treats are the perfect no-fuss contribution to a potluck or bake sale," she adds. "I've discovered a few minutes in the refrigerator helps the bar's frosting set faster. Of course, the trick is getting them in there before they disappear!"
