I’m pretty sure that every weekend my boys ask me to make “something yummy”, as they say it.  Which means something with chocolate and peanut butter.  My big boy has a definite addiction to peanut butter, whether it’s cookies, cake, bars, or eating it straight from the jar with his finger.  He loves it, so you wouldn’t be surprised to know his favorite candy is Reese’s, can you really blame him?  They are amazing!

Today we have a really easy Peanut Butter Cereal Bar to share with you today, these are were simple to make and the pan of bars didn’t last long at our house.  Hope you enjoy!

    I put peanut butter in my Rice Krispies treats, they are so hard to stop eating! The plain ones seem so blah after eating the pb ones!

    I love finding new ways to use up my leftover cereals, these sound like they would be a huge hit in our house! Pinned – definitely need to try these 🙂

    I make these as well, but use a jar of marshmallow fluff in place of the marshmallows.

    I so love the idea of these but marshmallows aren’t in my hubby’s training plan (he’s a runner). I wonder if substituting honey would work? He would LOVE this recipe!
