Caramel Apple Bars

My mom whipped up these tasty treats for J and I last night.

It’s always nice having your Mom make your bedtime snack.

Caramel Apple Bars
Ingredients:
1 C natural peanut butter (Parker’s and Maranatha are my favorites)
3/4 C caramel-flavored ice cream topping
3 T packed brown sugar
3 C Cherrios
1 C coarse chopped dried apples
1/2 C peanuts, whole OR chopped
Instructions:
Line 8x8x2 inch baking pan with foil, extend foil over edge of pan. Spray foil. In large saucepan combine 3/4 C peanut butter, 1/2 C caramel topping, and brown sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat just until mixture starts to bubble. Remove from heat. Add cereal and apples; stir gently to coat. Transfer to prepared pan; press firmly into pan with spatula or wax paper. In small bowl stir together remaining 1/4 C peanut butter and 1/4 C caramel topping. Spread evenly over bars and sprinkle peanuts over top, pressing lightly. Let bars stand for 1 hour. Enjoy!
ps..this is a good item to make on hot summer days when you don’t want to heat up your oven…and the kids can help!
Until next time…
look good, feel good, do good
