S'more Bars

I haven't tried these yet, but I thought they'd be a great treat for a relaxing Labor Day.


3 C. Cocoa Puffs Cereal
­3 C. Golden Grahams Cereal
1 C. peanuts
½ C. peanut butter
­1 (10.5-oz.) bag miniature marshmallows
2 Tbsp. milk


1. Spray bottom and sides of 13x9 inch pan with cooking spray or grease with shortening. In large bowl, mix both cereal and peanuts.
2. In a 3 quart saucepan, heat peanut butter, marshmallows and milk over low heat, stirring occasionally, until peanut butter and marshmallow are melted and mixture is smooth.
3. Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal mixture; stir to coat well. Press mixture in greased pan. Cool at least 30 minutes before serving. Cut into bars.
