    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely, about 1 hour. For 24 bars, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows.

Expert Tips

  • Substitution: One cup chopped walnuts instead of the peanuts gives these satisfying bars a slightly different flavour.
  • How-To: Place cereal in a plastic resealable food-storage bag or between sheets of waxed paper or plastic wrap; crush with a rolling pin. Or crush cereal in a blender or food processor.
