This recipe has been months in the making. Not because it took that much work to develop it. Nope, these bars are ready in minutes, and are pretty foolproof. The recipe was not problematic.
It’s just that I won’t buy cereal unless it’s on sale. I’m stubborn about it. Who’s with me?
It took months. I guess Publix knows what a hot commodity they have in these Reese’s Puffs, and they don’t want to help me save a few cents.
You know what else makes for great cereal bars, and ALSO doesn’t go on sale often enough? Peanut Butter Captain Crunch.
Publix was working me over on that cereal too. A fabulous alternative cereal for these bars, but I kept missing that sale too. Hmph.
The only major difference between the two cereals is whether you want chocolate. The Reese’s Puffs have chocolate puffs in addition to peanut butter ones, and the Captain Crunch is strictly peanut butter. Make it a game-time decision based on your mood?
I know how many people are chocolate + peanut butter lovers out there, and so I’m catering to the masses. If it’s me, I honestly might stick with peanut butter only, but I’m a bit more of a purist. Also, I far prefer white chocolate with peanut butter than regular chocolate, as is well-documented. Call me crazy. Either way, you cannot go wrong.
Featuring a full box of Reese’s Puffs, plus salted peanuts, Reese’s peanut butter chips, peanut butter, and lots of honey, these Reese’s Puffs cereal bars are sweet, a little salty, and packed with flavor. Drizzles of melted chocolate and peanut butter provide a sweet and delicious topping.
It’s an easy recipe with a short ingredient list, and these bars come together in minutes. Great for breakfast or a snack on-the-go!
