Peanut Cereal Squares

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.


2 dozen

"When I need to throw together something in a hurry, I turn to these no-bake squares," says Kathy Steffen. "And because the recipe doesn't include chocolate, you can pack them for long drives or vacations without worrying about melted-chocolate messes," she writes from her Fond du Lac, Wisconsin home.


  • 4 cups Rice Chex
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup salted peanuts
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Place cereal in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. pan; set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, bring corn syrup and sugar to a boil; boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat; stir in peanut butter until blended. Stir in peanuts and vanilla. Pour over cereal. Cool completely. Cut into squares.
