Let’s be honest here. I’m going to admit something. All those recipes you see on my blog. I rarely make them repeatedly. Sure I have my go to recipes that never fail me like when I need a sweet treat for someplace I usually go to these super easy Monster Cookie Bars. Or when I’m going to a summer time get together I’ll bring my Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad. Of course I have a few “go-to” family, friendly meals for company or to bring to families with newborns like this Spasagna or Mac & Cheese Lasagna!

Then every once in a while I fall in love with a recipe and I make it multiple times. Sometimes my family get scared because this is not typical behavior for a woman like me!


That’s what happened with these yummy bars. I tired them at the beginning of the summer because I needed sometimes to bring to a friends house that had just had a baby. I was kind of sick of all my old recipes and they aren’t strangers at our house so I felt the need to try something new and mix it up so they didn’t get a “Julie Stand By Recipe”. They were a hit, so when my cousin had a baby I knew I had to bring these bars over there.

Then I just wanted some so I obviously had to make some to satisfy that craving. So in a couple short months I had made this recipe three times and I still hadn’t took a picture of it! Obviously the only way to remedy that was to make them again.

Trust me no one was complaining when I made these over, and over, and over again! Plus they are so easy I sure wasn’t complaining either. It quickly became a go-to recipe in my book of tricks.

If you are looking for a quick, no-bake treat for the summer these are perfect. Plus, if the kids are headed back to school soon these make the perfect sweet treat for their lunch boxes or after school snack! They are chewy and loaded with Chex, Marshmallows, M&M’s and pretzels!

Add it to your arsenal of must make recipes!

    Thanks a lot Julie, now I am sitting here on a Sunday morning craving these bars! They look pretty amazing and it’s no wonder they were a hit with everyone!

  • Graham @ Glazed & Confused

    I’m seconding what Danielle said.

    These are too good!

  • Julianne+@+Beyond+Frosting

    These are so many good things in this bar I just can’t handle it!

    So much yum in one bar! NEED.

  • Sabrina Modelle

    So true. After I test a recipe, shoot it, and post it, I almost never remake it. There are, of course, exceptions! Yours looks like a good one 😉

  • nicole spasiano

    this is a dream come true for kids and adults. My daughter would love these. And I’d have to fight her for them. ha!
