Reviews for No-Bake Cereal Bars
"Easy and so good. My granddaughter loves to make these. We do make them gluten free using corn chex and rice chex. We also use 1/2 honey and 1/2 corn syrup. We have made the full recipe but we prefer to cut the recipe in half. It is surprising how many "reviewers" negatively criticize -- my mama always taught me if you can't say something nice keep your mouth shut."
"First time I made them by the recipe ...Really good.The second time I remembered I had a big jar of goodquality Amish made molasses. It looks and tasteslike a cross between honey & molasses... Supper goodstuff. So I used that instead of corn syrup & added ateaspoon of vanilla. Wow... now I cant stop eating them.Addicting! You could still mix honey and store boughtmolasses. The blacker the molasses is use more honeyand less molasses then. Just keep it at 2 cups total.I'd say it's healthier with honey an molasses too."
"Now you have done it. your NO BAKE CERAL BARS are so easy to make and dam good and easy to EAT. thank you for this rec .Doyle Scott."
"Way too much sugar!"
"Great recipe that reminds me of something I ate in High School. And, Sue Zappa, thank you for your comment. I've been a TOH subscriber from the beginning too, and many of these recipes are still family favorites. My oldest daughter is a firefighter, and my youngest plays squash. I can vouch that none of these recipes have killed any of us yet. :) Some of these reviewers ought to have a sweet treat now and then, and maybe they won't be so grouchy. :) I wish we could thumbs up and thumbs down the various reviews."
