Posted October 1, 2015

Here's an easy, tasty treat to fill hungry kids up after school.

Back to School Homemade Snack Bars

¼ cup softened butter
¼ cup honey (or light colored corn syrup may be used and will keep the bars firmer at room temperature than using honey)
¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups Honey Nut Cheerios
½ cup raisins, almonds, or trail mix
½ cup chocolate covered sunflower seeds (optional but add great crunch and color)

Line 8” square pan with foil and spray with non stick cooking spray.
Microwave butter, brown sugar, and honey for one minute.
Stop and stir. Microwave another minute.
Stop and stir. Microwave one more minute.
Remove from microwave, but use caution as mixture will be very bubbly.
Add vanilla and stir.
Add in “mix ins” and stir.
Put in foil lined pan. Cover and wait up to three hours for it to “set”
Cut into squares and enjoy!
