Caramel Cereal Treats

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. + standing


3-1/2 dozen

“I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on these bars,” writes Laurie Lingenfelter from Nevada, Iowa. Even her husband’s friends at work request the sweet, crispy treats.


  • 8 cups Sugar Smacks cereal
  • 1-3/4 cups dry roasted peanuts
  • 1 package (14 ounces) caramels
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips


  1. In a large bowl, combine cereal and peanuts; set aside. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the caramels, milk and butter. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 1-2 minutes or until caramels are melted, stirring every 30 seconds.
  2. Pour over cereal mixture; stir to coat. With greased hands, pat mixture into a greased 15x10x1-in. pan.
  3. In a microwave, melt chips stir until smooth. Cool slightly. Drizzle chocolate over caramels. Let stand until set. Cut into bars.
