Who doesn’t love a salty sweet snack? That’s where this creation came from! I thought about adding other ingredients, but this is all I did. I was thinking of peanuts, peanut butter, white chocolate chips, or coconut; all of which I think would be nice additions.
Snack Happy Bars Recipe
6 cups chocolate cereal*
2 cups crushed pretzels
20 (5.5 ounces) caramel cubes, chopped (or if you can find the bite size nibs)
¼ cup butter + extra to grease dishes
40 ounces marshmallows
1. In an extremely-large buttered bowl, combine cereal, pretzels, and caramel and mix.
2. Over medium-low heat melt butter and marshmallows together. When melted together and gooey pour into dry mixture.
3. Stir until dry mix is coated in marshmallow cream. Dump into buttered glassware to set. Firmly press into glassware to cohesive bars form. Allow to cool 30-minutes and cut into bars. Allow to continue to cool and harden together. Serve when desired.
* I used Three Sisters’ Cocoa-Snapz because I was shopping at Whole Foods and that’s what they had. Three Sisters does use corn syrup. Cocoa-Snapz is similar to Cocoa Pebbles, which to me looks like chocolate covered corn flakes.
