Crunchy Dessert Bars Recipe

"My son-in-law is diabetic and loves these five-ingredient frozen dessert bars," shares Shirley Reed of San Angelo, Texas. "With their nutty crunch from Grape Nuts cereal, we think they taste like the inside of a Snickers candy bar."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + freezing YIELD:24 servings


  • 1 pint fat-free no-sugar-added vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1 cup reduced-fat whipped topping
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat peanut butter
  • 1 package (1.0 ounce) sugar-free instant butterscotch pudding mix
  • 1 cup Grape-Nuts


  • 1. In a large bowl, beat the first four ingredients until smooth. Stir in cereal.
  • 2. Transfer to a foil-lined 8-in. square pan. Cover and freeze for 3-4 hours or until firm. Use foil to lift out of pan; discard foil. Cut into bars. Yield: 2 dozen.
