November 3, 2011: M&M Crunch Bars Recipe

Bookmark and Share
This is an easy recipe I made for a dessert at my son’s Halloween party. It was a big hit – there wasn’t a crumb leftover! Rather than making the traditional Rice Krispies bars you might be used to, try this recipe for a chocolate and peanut butter infusion.

M&M Crunch Bars

3 T. butter
3 T. creamy peanut butter
30 large marshmallows (or one 7-ounce jar marshmallow crème)
6 cups Cap’n Crunch cereal
1 cup M&Ms

In a saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Add the peanut butter and marshmallows and cook, stirring constantly, until marshmallows melt. Stir in cereal and M&Ms. With greased fingers, spread into a greased 13x9” pan. Cool; cut into squares.

Tip: If you want these bars to look extra festive, sort the M&Ms into colors; for instance you can use just orange and brown for Halloween, or green, orange, and brown for Thanksgiving, red and white for Valentine’s Day, etc.
