Easy and fast done and you know what you and your Kids are actually eating!! These Cereal bars can have all the ingredients you love in a good snack. As i love nuts and dried fruits and also chocolate, i simply combined them all!
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1,5 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup crispy rice cereal (vanilla or chocolate)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons chocolate chips
a handful of nuts, dried fruits – whichever you like best
In a big bowl mix together crispy rice cereal, oats, nuts and dried fruits and put aside.
In a small saucepan mix honey, braun sugar and butter together and bring it to boil for around 2 minutes. Add the vanilla and stir well. Pour everything over the dry ingredients and combine well, so everything is well covered with the butter sugar mix. ( If you are not doing this step well, your cereal bars might fall apart later. The butter sugar mix is like a glue to the cereal.)
Pour into a normal size roll pan and press it very good and even, so they stick together. It should be around 2cm thick. Melt chocolate (i prefer to melt it in the microwave 2-3 x 20 seconds, take care not to over heat it!!) Pour it in stripes over the cereal and let it cool down in the fridge for aprox. 20 minutes. Take the pan out of the fridge and cut the cereal into stripes. Storage them in airtight container!
