No-Bake Sweet-and-Salty Cereal Bars
cups Honey Nut Cheerios™ cereal
cup dry-roasted peanuts
cup M&M's™ chocolate candies
cup pretzel sticks, coarsely broken
cup packed brown sugar
cup light corn syrup
Line bottom and sides of 8-inch square pan with foil or parchment paper. Spray foil with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix cereal, peanuts, chocolate candies and pretzels; set aside.
In large microwavable bowl, microwave brown sugar, corn syrup and butter uncovered on High 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until mixture is boiling. Microwave an additional 1 minute allowing mixture to boil and thicken slightly. Let stand 3 minutes to cool slightly.
Pour over cereal mixture in bowl; stir until evenly coated. Using buttered back of spoon, press mixture very firmly in pan. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm enough to cut.
For bars, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store covered at room temperature up to 1 week.
Make sure to really compress the cereal bars; that will make them easier to cut.
