Crispy Cereal Bars

We hosted a little get-together after the Thanksgiving Service at Church...You can barely see Nanny's Russian Tea in the soup tureen...

...but what I really wanted to post about were the 'bars' - that's a word that I never really heard used this way before we moved up here - they call any sort of snack that can be cut into squares 'bars' - and a lot of 'bars' are served at coffee hour after Church every Sunday...

...Scout's favorite is some sort of cereal bar with peanut butter and a thin layer of chocolate on top... we searched through some recipes and came up with this...

Crispy Cereal Bars

Put into a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat:
•1 1/2 cups Turbinado sugar
•1-1/2 cups corn syrup
•1-1/2 cups peanut butter

Prepare a half sheet pan by greasing it with Earth Balance.

Pour the hot sugar mixture over
•6 cups crisp cereal - we used Corn Flakes
in a large bowl and mix well - press into prepared pan.

Ice the bars with
•12 oz. pkg. semisweet vegan chocolate chips - melted.

If you have access to vegan chocolate chips - you can just melt a bag of those and spread it over the top - but if like me you can't find vegan chocolate chips within a 90 mile radius of your home you can make your own Chocolate Chip - there won't be any need in forming them into chocolate chips and you'll need to double the recipe.


  1. Yum! I am a fan of the bars!Oops, don't take that out of context!!!

  2. Those look yummy! I have a non-vegan recipe book for all sorts of bars. It is an older printing of this book
    They all look yummy :-) Yours do too!

  3. nice simple recipe - added bonus that it's made with stuff you already have in the cupboard. glad you had a nice gathering. love, k

  4. oh, i have to make those!
