Tried ‘n’ True: An easy Rice Krispie treats substitute to take to gatherings

With picnics and family reunions coming up, here is an easy recipe to take. Most take Rice Krispie treats. Here is a Corn Chex mix. It is really good. Make sure everyone knows this has peanut butter in it. Our grandkids love these even though they’re grown. Even grandma likes these. I used to make a snack with these ingredients with butter and peanut butter (I use chips) that was also good. I also liked peanuts in the snack. This is my version of snack squares.

Snack Squares

2 1⁄2 cups pretzel sticks (break in half)

2 cups Corn Chex (can use different Chex cereal)

1 1⁄2 cups M&Ms

1⁄2 cup butter or margarine

1⁄3 cup creamy peanut butter

5 cups miniature marshmallows

• Combine pretzels, Corn Chex, and M&Ms.

• In a saucepan over low heat, melt butter and peanut butter.

• Add marshmallows.

• Cook and stir until marshmallows and mixture is smooth.

• Pour over Corn Chex mixture and stir to coat.

• Press into a 9-by-13-inch pan.

• Cool until firm and cut into squares.
