These bars looked intriguing. They originally called for puffed wheat cereal. Well, I happened to have a box of Honey Smacks that needed to go. I had just enough for these!
They certainly are super sweet but very delicious too. The kids had no problem at all devouring the pan. There were about 10 kids going at them so they were disappointed that I didn't have more Honey Smacks.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cereal Bars
Adapted from Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice
5 cups Honey Smacks cereal
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup jelly or jam
2/3 cup honey
Line an 8x8 inch deep-sided baking or casserole dish with parchment or aluminum foil. Grease lightly. Add the cereal to an extra large mixing bowl.
In a small saucepan over very low heat melt peanut butter, jam and honey together, stir well, remove from heat, pour over cereal, mix well until cereal is evenly coated. Pour immediately into casserole dish, smooth out and lightly press the cereal down.
Refrigerate for two hours. Remove bars from pan with parchment to a cutting board. Slice into bars with a super sharp knife.
