White Chocolate Cereal Bars

A friend shared with me this fresh take on traditional crispy treats. My husband loves them, and I feel so efficient with their quick prep time. —Anne Powers, Munford, Alabama

      I got an email with '30 Junk Food Copycat Recipes' and this recipe was included in them but it says 'so quick to make that you can prepare them during a TV commercial'...while the recipe clearly says it takes 15 no, you can't prepare them during the commercial breaks which are at most 3-4 minutes. Also, this says it is white chocolate but it calls for 'white baking chips' which are vanilla flavored. Just thought I would point those out. With Easter coming soon I could see using the pastel colored candy melts to make these with Easter colors.

      Very sweet. I didn't mind them, but the husband couldn't eat more than one.

      Our family enjoyed these light chocolate-flavoured crispie squares. The chocolate does make that hint of a difference which is quite nice from the standard crispie square. And quick! Wow, I'll say! Very nice!HomeChefColleen - Taste of Home Field Editor
