Quick and easy 4-ingredient cereal bars made with Reese’s Puffs cereal.Hey friends! Today I’m back with another easy recipe. These days I’m always trying to find new ways to change up favorite recipes and snack ideas for the kids. Since I know my kids could probably eat cereal for every meal if I’d let them, I like to whip up easy cereal snacks for them when I’m short on time. These Reese’s Puffs cereal bars are my son’s favorite! I think he takes after his dad with his love of Reese’s. Can you blame him? Chocolate and peanut butter? That’s a match made in heaven! Since we stocked up on a bunch of cereal boxes with the extra Box Tops right before school, I wanted to make a few treats out of them.
These cereal bars couldn’t be easier to make. It’s simply melted marshmallows mixed with Reese’s Puffs cereal and peanuts. I’m a big fan of adding nuts to our cereal bars for the texture and smidge of protein it adds to our snack. To make the bars I use a 13×9 inch pan and a greased parchment paper sheet for easy removal. They can get sticky so I highly recommend greasing your baking sheet or parchment paper.
Reese's Puffs Cereal Bars
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 10 ounce bag miniature marshmallows
- 6 cups Reese's Puffs cereal
- 1 cup peanuts
Melt butter and marshmallows over low heat in a medium pan.
Combine cereal with melted marshmallows. Stir in peanuts.
Press mixture into a greased 13x9 inch pan. Tip: butter your spatula to spread the mixture without it sticking.
Allow cereal bars to cool for an hour before cutting.
Does your child’s school participate in the Box Tops program? We’ve been using our Box Tops mason jar and it’s been SO handy for keeping our Box Tops in one place. My kids enjoy getting to put the Box Tops through the coin slot once we’re finished with the package. I’ve been keeping my eye out for more products that have the “extra” Box Tops label on the package. What we love about this program is that the money the school collects helps fund special projects, field trips, and classroom supplies. All we need to do is clip the label from the package – definitely an easy way to help your school!
