You know the feeling. Once in a while you crave something crunchy, chewy, sweet and salty . . . all at the same time. What a treat it is to have all of those flavors in one easy-to-eat, grab-and-go bar. These bars will crush your craving.

Heat your oven to 350°F. Cut sugar cookie dough in half crosswise, then cut each section in half lengthwise. Press dough in bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch pan. Bake for about 15 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool.

In a 2-quart saucepan, cook the “first layer” ingredients – sugar, peanut butter, butter, marshmallow cream, evaporated milk and vanilla – over medium heat for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly until blended.
Stir in about 1 cup of chopped peanuts …
Pour the mixture over the cooled cookie base. Place in the freezer while you make the “top layer.” 

In a 2-quart saucepan, melt caramels with evaporated milk over medium heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from the heat.

Stir in cereal …
Remove bars from the freezer. Pour cereal mixture evenly over the bars. Put them back in the freezer for about 30 minutes, to cool completely. 

To serve, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Dig in!
