Sweet and Salty Cap'n Crunch Bars

No Bake Cap'n Crunch Cereal Bars Recipe

Do you watch "The Chew" on ABC? I do, and have ever since it debuted and took the place of the long running soap, "All My Children".

I love watching "The Chew" and just the other day there was an episode where Clinton Kelly and Carla Hall were stating that Cap'n Crunch cereal is (in their opinion's) the best cereal ever! This got me to thinking...

I've not had Cap'n Crunch in like, forever but I'll bet it would be tasty worked into a marshmallow cereal bar with all sorts of other delicious ingredients....hmmmmm....note to self.


1 stick butter
2 tablespoons coconut oil
16 ounces mini marshmallows
1 cup peanut butter
12 ounces Cap'n Crunch cereal (original flavor)
6 ounces pretzels, crushed
5 ounces roasted, salted peanuts
7 ounces dark chocolate chips
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

-In a large stockpot over medium heat, melt the butter and the coconut oil.
-Add in the mini marshmallow and stir occasionally until the marshmallows are melted.
-Add in the peanut butter and stir to combine.
-Lower the heat to low and stir in the cereal, crushed pretzels and peanuts.
-Stir well with a wooden spoon to combine all the ingredients.
-Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips and the vanilla extract until fully incorporated.
-Pour the mixture into a greased 9x13 pan and press it (using the back of a spatula) into an even layer.
-Allow to cool completely and then cut into bars for serving.

I think Clinton and Carla would be thrilled with these. They ARE quite amazing if I do say so myself!!  :)

Plus, they're sure to put a smile on almost everyone's face ~ Almost being the operative word!  LOL
