EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

One cup chopped walnuts instead of the peanuts gives these satisfying bars a slightly different flavor.

Place cereal in a plastic resealable food-storage bag or between sheets of waxed paper or plastic wrap; crush with a rolling pin. Or crush cereal in a blender or food processor.
