sure to please treats for adults (ahem, I mean kids)...

OK, so this is really a "kids treat" but I've gotten raves from both kids and their parents.  I can't claim the recipe but I've found enough people aren't familiar with it that I thought it was worth passing along here.  I always like to pass along super easy recipes because those are the kind that as a Mom I love the best.

M&M Pretzel Bars

1/4 c. butter
1 - 10 oz. package of marshmallows
1/3 c. creamy peanut butter

Mix in:
2 c. thin pretzel sticks (broken up)
2 c. Chex cereal (I use rice but I'm sure any kind would be fine)
Last mix in 1 1/2 c. M&Ms (choose whatever color combo goes with the season/celebration!)

Press into a greased 9x13 pan.  If recipe is halved, press into a greased 8x8 pan, if recipe is doubled, press into a greased large cookie sheet.

Let set & enjoy!  YUM!

mmmm.....I'm definitely going to be running to the store to buy a few ingredients that I don't already have & will be trying this out for sure! Thanks for the recipe.

Anything with M&Ms in the name--count me in!! M&Ms are my fave!! Sounds good--I am going to try it. Too bad it has PB in would make a good daycare treat, but they are nut-free. Oh well.
