Honey Chip Granola Bars

I first tried these not-too-sweet bars at my mother-in-law's house. A marshmallow, honey and peanut butter mixture is delicious over crunchy cereal, oats and nuts. Be sure to let the bars cool a bit before pressing the mini chocolate chips on top or they'll melt. -RosAnna Troyer Millersburg, Ohio

    I thought this seemed like a huge recipe but then took these to a picnic, I see why it makes so much, these are delicious! Despite the quantity of marshmallows (one and a half bags) they are not overly sweet. I used Almond Butter and chopped Almonds in place of the peanut butter and peanuts. I would also recommend putting the oil and butter in a large microwave safe bowl, melt it, use it to grease the whole bowl, then add the marshmallows, toss them in the butter and microwave 1 to 1 ½ minutes to melt them. Have the dry ingredients measured in a bowl (greased if you plan to pour the marshmallow mixture into this bowl) so the marshmallow does not cool too much and stir, stir, stir. I had trouble getting the chocolate chips to stay on and next time will mix them in at the end and risk them melting to prevent them from falling off.
