Cereal Bars

Quick and easy homemade cereals bars for lunch box treats, specially for kids. It’s not very often I buy cereal bars anymore, as its so quick and easy to make it yourself. You know what goes into them and you can change how much sugar or which cereals go into the bars. Children love getting involved into making these, but be careful with the heat butter mix as its super duper hot.

Making cereal bars is a great way to use up cereals that maybe the kids don’t like or been sitting in the cupboard, or using up a open bag of marshmallows before they go dry. Marshmallows tend to get this dry and dehydrated look if not in an airtight container, even then they don’t last long.

You don’t have to bake these bars, you can just spread them in a tray and allow to cool then slice into pieces. The reason I baked mine, were to have that melted chocolate feel instead of clumps of chocolate.
