In Wynot, Nebraska, Penny Reifenrath uses peanut butter, Cheerios and candies to put a tooth-tingling spin on marshmallow-cereal bars. "Whether I take them to picnics or bake sales, I'm always asked for the recipe," she notes.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package (10 ounces) miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 5 cups Cheerios
  • 1 cup milk chocolate M&M's

Directions

  1. Place butter and marshmallows in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 1-2 minutes or until melted. Stir in peanut butter until blended. Add the cereal and M&M's. Spoon into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. pan; press down gently. Cool slightly before cutting.
