No Bake Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Corn Flakes Bars

The classic chocolate and peanut butter combination is made even better by adding some crunchy Corn Flakes into these no bake bars.

Happy Friday y'all!

How is summer treating you? Any summer plans? Going to the beach? Cabin? Or are you working all through summer?



No Bake Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Corn Flakes Bars


Whatever the case, I feel like Fridays deserve peanut butter and chocolate! I mean, can you think of a better combination?

AND, I feel like summer days deserve no bake treats. What do you say? Are you ready for one of the easiest desserts you will make this summer?


No Bake Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Corn Flakes Bars


These no bake bars were gone faster than I would like to admit. Hiding them in the back of the fridge didn't even work! For a couple of days, you could find me right by the open refrigerator door. Stealing bite after bite of these cute little bars.

I used Corn Flakes inside, but you could easily replace it with Rice Krispies, or your own favorite cereal. My suggestion would be to make sure it's not an overly sugary cereal: these bars are sweet enough as is.

Hope your weekends are as chocolate coated and peanut butter slathered as mine will be!

  2. Corn flakes were my favorite cereal growing up. How neat to see a bar using them instead of rice krispies. These look scrumptious. Can't beat that chocolate - peanut butter combo!

  14. The chocolate and peanut butter is enough to make me want to dive into these. But then you put corn flakes in there! And I died a little bit. In a good way. A very good way.
