    I needed to use up some Shredded Wheat cereal that no-one was eating so this recipe was perfect! because of my changes I felt I should only give 4 stars. I didn't have any honey so i took my 1/2 measurer and filled it almost all the way with light corn syrup, then the rest of the way with a few T of maple syrup for flavor. The cereal gave a nice crunch , the raisins made them a bit chewy and the peanut flavor was mild imo... I had trouble trying to cut them into bars since they were a bit soft and gooey; maybe the honey would have made them firmer! I may add some chopped peanuts next time as well! Thanks for the recipe.  -  08 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great way to use up the shredded wheat and have a little something sweet too. I added 1 additional cup of cereal for a total of 4 cups, did not pack the brown sugar, added 1 teaspoon of vanilla and replaced raisins with semi-sweet mini chocolate chips sprinkled on top. For the stove top method, I brought the brown sugar and honey to a boil, removed from heat, added peanut butter and vanilla, stirred until smooth, poured over cereal, mixed, poured into pan, sprinkled with chocolate chips. Yum!  -  16 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
