Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Pretzel GRANOLA BARS

Who doesn't love a good no-bake recipe? 

This girl sure does. Not that I mind baking, but it's still nice not to have to crank up the ovens every once in awhile.

You're gonna love these. Seriously. They are yum-tastic. It's a pretzely-chocolately-peanutbuttery party for your tastebuds.

Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Pretzel Granola Bars

Source: adapted from Rachel Ray magazine
Yield: 10-12 bars in an 8*8 pan

2 cups quick cook oats
3/4 cup rice krispy cereal (or comparable cereal)
1/2 cup smashed pretzels (measure after smashing)
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 packed light brown sugar
Mini chocolate chips for topping

Place pretzels in a ziptop bag and smash using a rolling pin or meat mallet (or the back of a saucepan). You still want there to be some larger chunks so don't completely pulverize it.

In a saucepan, combine peanut butter, honey, brown sugar and butter. Stir constantly over medium until well combined. Once everything is melted and combined, cook for 1 minute and then remove from heat.

Add your oats, cereal and pretzels to the pan. Stir WELL. You want everything to be completely combined.

Line an 8*8 with parchment paper and then lightly spray with non-stick spray. Evenly distribute granola mix into the pan. Top with chocolate. Refrigerate for about 20 minutes (until hardened) and then cut and serve.
