PB & J Squares

OK so here is a new recipe I found and there is a lot you can do with this for mix in I did raisins and Craisins I didn't have any nuts. I'm pretty sure any nuts would work and chocolate chips and i was thinking maybe some pretzels might work.


6 cups Cheerios® cereal

½ cup peanuts

½ cup raisins
1/3 cup grape jelly
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup light corn syrup
½ cup creamy peanut butter

  • 1 Spray bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. In large bowl, place cereal, peanuts and raisins; stir to mix. Set aside.
  • 2 In 2-quart saucepan, heat jelly, sugar and corn syrup over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture begins to boil. Boil 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter until mixture is smooth.
  • 3 Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal mixture in bowl; stir until cereal is evenly coated. Pour mixture into pan. With buttered back of spoon, press mixture in pan until even. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4 With table knife, cut cereal mixture into 6 rows by 4 rows to make 24 bars. Store in loosely covered container.
