I wasn’t sure I would like this since I’m not a big fan of pretzels but I was pretty sure my family would.  And they did.  But I liked it, too.  I didn’t really taste the pretzels especially with all the other goodies.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 5 cups crisp rice cereal
  • 2 cups pretzel sticks
  • 1 cup plain M&M’s


In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the sugar and corn syrup.  Microwave on high for 3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved.  Stir in peanut butter until blended.  Add the cereal, pretzels and M&M’s; stir until coated.  Press into a greased 15x10x1 pan.  Cut into bars.  Yield about 5 dozen.


  • I broke the pretzel sticks into smaller pieces.
  • You’ll get 5 dozen if you cut them really tiny which I didn’t.  I cut half of the pan into smaller pieces and the other half into bigger pieces so I ended up with 12 big pieces and 24 smaller pieces.

I thought I'd probably go back to work when my kids were grown, and I did briefly, but I came back home as soon as my first grandchild was born. I learned that home was my favorite place to be and homemaking was and is my calling.
