Easy Cookies and Cream Cereal Bar Treats #sponsored

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for ACH Food Companies Inc. I received a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.

Summer is winding down quickly and we are finishing up end of summer plans. All the summer trips are ending, too! A few of the teens had friend get togethers this weekend so we whipped up a batch of tasty sweet treats for them to take along. How are you wrapping up summer with your kids?
 Before I began looking through sweet treat recipes for the teens I had a few requirements! The recipe needed to be easy to take along, not messy to eat, quick to make, chocolate and something hungry teens would eat! We looked through the Karo Syrup website's recipes and found Cookies & Cream Cereal Bar Treats that met all of our requirements! Not only did it meet the teen requirements but I had all of the ingredients on hand! Win for everyone! 

Cookies & Cream Cereal Bar Treats

Ingredients
  • Mazola® No Stick Cooking Spray
  • 6 cups chocolate crispy rice cereal
  • 2 cups crumbled chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1 cup Karo® Light Corn Syrup
  • 1 package (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Optional toppings: chocolate cookie crumbs, mini chocolate chips, mini candy-coated milk chocolate pieces
Directions
  1. Spray 13 x 9-inch pan with cooking spray; set aside. Combine cereal and cookies in a large bowl.

  2. Combine corn syrup and chocolate chips in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook until mixture just begins to boil. Remove from heat.

  3. Pour over cereal, stirring to coat completely. Pour into prepared pan; press firmly to level.

  4. Top with additional any of the optional toppings listed, if desired; pat into place. Cool and cut into bars. Store in air tight container for up to 2 days.

This was such an easy recipe to recreate. It was so easy that my 14 year old ended up making the recipe while I was in the kitchen doing other last minute preparations and cleaning up after her. She loves to bake and make treats but has a blinder on when it comes to the kitchen mess she creates. I give her pointers all the time on how to clean as you go along but it hasn't sunk in yet! So I'm the clean up crew when she is creating.  

We do have permission to share this recipe and hope that you will get the kids in the kitchen here at the end of summer and create some last minute treats! If you are done traveling and counting down the days to back to school, maybe you can throw a back to school party! This would be an excellent treat to make!
