My kids found this recipe on the Chex box of cereal. I happen to like the Chex snack mix recipes, especially the ones with nuts and Chex cereal. This one is a crunchy dessert bar that is easy to make.

4 cups Chocolate Chex® cereal
½ cup salted peanuts
½ cup light corn syrup
¼ cup sugar
½ cup creamy peanut butter
¼ cup candy-coated chocolate candies, like M&M’s or Reese’s Pieces

1. Butter bottom and sides of 9-inch square pan, or spray with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix cereal and peanuts.
2. In 1-quart saucepan, heat corn syrup and sugar over medium heat, stirring constantly, just to boiling. Remove from heat; stir in peanut butter until smooth.
3. Pour over cereal mixture in bowl, stirring until evenly coated. Stir in candies. Press firmly in pan. Cool 1 hour. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Store loosely covered.
