Peanut Cereal Squares Recipe

"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.
