Snow Covered Crunch Bars

Everything around here is still covered in snow so I figured I should make a treat that is too. Check it out:

Snow Covered Crunch Bars


  • 1 (1 pound 1.5 ounce) pouch sugar cookie mix
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 (12 ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 6 cups Rice Chex type cereal
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, or as needed


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray 13x9-inch or 2 9'x9' square baking pans with cooking spray. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, 1/2 cup butter and egg until soft dough forms. Press dough in bottom of pan. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 15 minutes.
  2. In large bowl, melt chocolate chips and the remaining 1/2 cup butter (I used the microwave) until melted and smooth. Add peanut butter; mix until well blended.
  3. Place cereal in a plastic bag. Using your hands, gently break cereal into small pieces. Gently stir cereal into chocolate mixture until cereal is coated. Spread cereal mixture evenly over cookie crust; gently press. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until bars are set. Cut into bars to serve.
