Sweet and Salty Cereal Bars

Tasty way to satisfy those sweet and salty cravings. :) I found this recipe online while searching for a way to use up the rest of the Crispix cereal I had purchased for another recipe.This recipe is wonderful! I followed as planned but did not have mnm's so I used chocolate chips instead. They were great! Also, A little tip I picked up somewhere. Put your hands under cold water and use them to press the bars into the pan. Your hands will not stick....just get a little messy, but it works really well. :)Used cranberries (instead of M&Ms) and unsalted roasted nuts. Super tasty! Thank you!
