"This mix was the perfect item for my daughter to take to high school track meets," says Blue Springs, Nebraska's Theresa Gingery. Five ingredients make up this colorful crowd-pleaser that's crunchy, chewy and not too sweet.
These sweet no-bake snacks are great energy bars. Any dried fruit works well, but I prefer cranberries. Grain cereals, plus honey, peanuts and peanut butter make the bars popular at my house.

Cayenne pepper packs some punch in this crunchy blend of cereal, crackers, pretzels and peanuts from Terry Kuehn of Waunkee, Wisconsin. Although it makes a big batch, you might have to make more at halftime!
Not only do the flavors of chocolate, marshmallow and peanuts taste great together, the easy recipe reminds me of being up north at the cabin with my family. Makes a fast batch of treats to sell at your school bake sale. —Jamie McMahon, Cologne, Minnesota
This is one of my family's favorite summer dishes. The kids love this filling salad's sweet dressing. While the chicken is grilling, I prepare the dressing and vegetables.—Stephanie Moon, Boise, Idaho.
Cereal and peanuts add the crunch to these sweet and peanut-buttery treats you can whip up in no time. One batch makes plenty for snacking and sharing. At Christmas, my sister and I add them to trays of homemade candies we give to the customers of the house-cleaning service we run. We're often asked for the recipe.
