"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."
"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"
