My twist on rice crispy bars includes crunchy crushed pretzels. Then I top them with a creamy peanut butter coating and rich chocolate topping. Garnished with peanuts and even more pretzels, I don’t think I'd ever go back to plain old bars again. —Sherri Melotik, Oak Creek, Wisconsin
There's something for everyone in these delectable bars, from coconut and chocolate chips to walnuts and toffee. They're popular with kids and adults alike, so make a big batch. You'll be amazed at how fast they vanish! —Judith Strohmeyer, Albrightsville, Pennsylvania
This recipe was given to me nearly 50 years ago, at a company picnic, and it's our family's favorite dessert. Now my grandchildren bake it for their families. When each of our three sons got serious about a girl, sure enough, I'd get a call from a young lady requesting "his favorite dish". I always gave the girls this recipe.
Folks will think you slaved away on these fast and fudgy treats. "People often request the recipe and are surprised to find out how easy they are to make," reports Karen Speidel of Wheeling, Illinois. "Even kids can make 'em!"
Chock-full of chips, nuts and mini marshmallows, these rich bars are a cinch to stir up. "They make great Christmas treats, but I like to prepare them year-round," explains Peg Wilson, Elm Creek, Nebraska.
