MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 6, 2014

I see all of the concerns over sugar and corn syrup. I too like to eat healthy. With that said, this recipe makes TEN DOZEN! When you break it down it's really not that much sugar with a quantity so high. They're delicious & can be made with natural peanut butter in addition to two healthy cereals. If you don't like all the sugar, make something else.

I'm annoyed with myself for the stupid typos I'd made! These bars are SCRUMPTIOUS! I meant to say I used 1 cup each light con syrup and granulated sugar, -1/2 to 1-3/4 cups creamy peanut butter, 3 cups each Cheerios and Crispix cereal. I used a lightly greased 13x9x2" baking pan and let the bars stand at room tempt. Then I cut them! Pauline, THANK YOU for this recipe! I'll be using it time and again! DELowenstein

MY REVIEW

I have made this recipe for years. It has had different names and a few changes in cereal, as one calls for special K, one for corn flakes, which is the one we always make, and ours is half of the ingredients. It is always a big hit with our family. The recipe I have with special K also calls for a topping of 1 cup of butterscotch chips and 1 cup of semi-sweet chips melted together and spread over the top of it. This is delicious also.
