Ingredients
  • 1/2cup honey
  • 1/2cup peanut butter
  • 1/2cup light brown sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1cup quick-cooking oats
  • 2 1/2cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1/2cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus more for top drizzle
  • 1/2cup Mini M&Ms, plus more for tops of bars
Instructions
  1. Using parchment paper or foil, line a 9×9 baking dish.
  2. Heat honey and peanut butter for one minute in a microwave-safe bowl.
  3. Add in the brown sugar and whisk together. Then, stir in vanilla.
  4. Add oats, Rice Krispies, chocolate chips, and M&Ms to the mixture. Stir until combined.
  5. Pour the mixture into your prepared baking dish.
  6. Spray a little non-stick cooking spray onto your hands or the bottom of a cup and press mixture down into the pan. The object is to pack everything together and have a smooth top (you don’t want lumpy bars).
  7. Refrigerate for two hours.
  8. Slice into bars (choose the width you like).
  9. Drizzle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with M&Ms (or a different candy/nuts).
