Sweet and Salty Cereal Bars



  • 4 cups Crispix cereal
  • 2 cups Cheerios toasted oat cereal
  • 1 1/2 cups lightly salted peanuts
  • 1 1/2 cups broken pretzels
  • 1 1/2 cups M&M’s plain chocolate candy
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Combine cereals, peanuts, and pretzels in a large bowl.
  2. Combine corn syrup, brown sugar, and butter in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat; boil 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in vanilla.
  3. Immediately pour sugar mixture over cereal mixture, and stir well to coat; stir in M&Ms.
  4. Using a greased spatula, press mixture tightly into a greased jellyroll pan (approximately 15X10 inches) and cool at room temperature. (I spread it as evenly as I could, then covered with a sheet of non-stick aluminum foil and pressed it out firmly and evenly.).
  5. Cut into bars when completely cooled.
