  • 2 cups Corn flakes

  • 1/2 cup Milk chololate chips
  • 3 Tbl Butter

Instructions:

Butter a strip of foil and line the bottom of a square baking dish. Toast the oatmeal and corn flakes in a 350~ oven for 5 minutes and then place in a large bowl. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl, oatmeal, corn flakes, dried cranberries, pecans (hold the chocolate chips until things cool). In a sauce pan melt the butter, honey, peanut butter and vanilla extract until smooth. Poor the warm mixture over the dry ingredients and mix well. Wait about 5 minutes and add the chocolate chips (reserve a few to place on top of the bar). Place the mixture in the lined baking dish and press them into place to cover the pan and create the square bar shape (you can use wax paper). Once the mixture is pressed into the pan, add the additional chocolate chips and press those into the top of the bars. Refrigerate for one to three hours, remove and cute into even rectangles. Place into bags or baggies for easy on the go snacks.
