The Everything Cereal Bar

Do you get through half a box of cereal and then never end up finishing it? Well, that happened to my family last week. Talk about wasting food! Never finishing cereals that you get sick of. WELL, let me tell you, I turned our boring cereal into a great after school snack. These little babies were gone within 48 hours…and there are only 3 of us! Temptingly devilish and easy as pie! 10 minutes start to finish-promise!

    this one I have to try! minus the peanuts since we have an allergic little girl but I'm assuming it'll still taste delicious! I like your crock pot recipes too – i tend to lean towards those ones since they're easiest – if you have any more please share!
