If your family likes granola bars, they're sure to love these tempting treats. Full of hearty ingredients, they're a perfect snack for taking along on picnics and bike trips or for packing in brow-bag lunches.—Carolyn Fisher, Kinzer, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 9 cups Rice Chex, crushed
  • 6 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 2 packages (one 16 ounces, one 10-1/2 ounces) large marshmallows
  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1-1/2 cups raisins or M&M's minis or miniature semisweet chocolate chips, optional

Directions

  1. In a very large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In a Dutch oven over low heat, cook and stir marshmallows and butter until the marshmallows are melted. Add honey and mix well.
  2. Pour over cereal mixture; stir until blended. Add the raisins, M&M's or chocolate chips if desired. Pat two-thirds into a greased 15x10x1-in. pan and the remaining third into a 9-in. square pan. Cool before cutting into bars.
