When I was a kid, I used to eat cereal every morning. There were a bunch of cereal options available but my favourite was Captain Crunch Peanut Butter Cereal. It was considered as one of the best cereals during my childhood.
But one day when my aunt visited my home, she made something really special using the Peanut Butter Cereal that I truly loved. She made Crunchy Cereal bars. And those bars were so tasty that I couldn’t resist myself from eating those.
The reason why I loved these bars so much was because of the taste of peanut butter combined with chocolate chips. So, I learned the recipe of these Peanut Butter Cereal Bars from her. And to this day, I make these bars for myself and for my kids as well.
