"Here is a simple snack mix I created on the spur of the moment," writes Barbara Roberts of Middleton, Wisconsin. "It's easy to toss together for a Halloween party or to package in individual bags for a fall bake sale."
I first tried these not-too-sweet bars at my mother-in-law's house. A marshmallow, honey and peanut butter mixture is delicious over crunchy cereal, oats and nuts. Be sure to let the bars cool a bit before pressing the mini chocolate chips on top or they'll melt.
Packed with peanuts and gooey with caramel, this do-ahead treat from our Test Kitchenis one sweet dream of a dessert to serve company. With an easy cookie crust and scrumptious candy bar layers, it goes together quickly…and will disappear just as fast!
I grew up in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and spent a lot of time in the kitchen with my mom and grandmother making Pennsylvania Dutch classics. This scrumptious recipe, which combines two of our favorite flavors, is one I adapted.

"Anyone who tries a piece of this sweet peanut butter-flavored dessert asks for the recipe...and a second helping," writes Judy Hofer of Grand Prairie, Alberta. "We make enough to serve the 76 people who live on our grain farm, so it has to be good."
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.

"We often prepare this yummy dessert for company," Ellen Thompson shares from Springfield, Ohio. Just five ingredients are all that's needed for the creamy, chocolate- and peanut-flavored sensation. And best of all? "It's easy to take just the portion you want and freeze the rest for later," suggests Ellen.
