Is anyone else dragging today? Over the weekend we held a surprise party for my father-in-law, the whole family stayed in hotel rooms and I think all of the grandkids were up between 5-6 a.m. Sunday morning. Clearly, with daylight savings this past weekend, we did not think that through when scheduling the party. Regardless, it was a lot of fun, we pulled off a great surprise and we can always sleep later, right?
But if you're in the need for a little pick-me-up, I think I have the perfect treat for you! I made these Snicker bars yesterday and the pan is just about polished off. Now I know what you're thinking, but no, I have not ate all of these myself. I think we gave away a good 3/4 of the pan....thank goodness because I keep wanting to grab one.
We have a huge bag of the kids' Halloween candy hiding in our room, they've actually been very good about it and have only had a few pieces since they went trick-or-treating. I discovered they had a ridiculous amount of Snickers bars and thought of these Rice Krispy like bars. They are made just the same way as krispy treats but by substituting Chex cereal and incorporating Snickers inside, they are one divine little treat.
I can't wait for you to make these bars, be sure to let me know what you think!
1 stick butter
1 bag large marshmallows
10 fun size Snickers bars or 2 regular size- chopped into small pieces
7 c Corn Chex cereal
In a large pan melt butter over medium heat, add in 5 of the chopped Snickers bars and stir until chocolate is melted. Add in bag of marshmallows and stir until melted completely. Remove from heat and stir in chex cereal, add in last of the Snickers bars. Press cereal mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Let cool and then cut into squares.
