Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs Bars Recipe and Throwback with Big G Retro Cereals! #CerealThrowback

Calling all peanut butter lovers!! Today's recipe and post is a pretty great one! Reese's Peanut Butter Puff Bars, anyone?


Have you been to the cereal aisle at Target lately?

For a limited time, exclusively at Target, you can find throwback boxes of select General Mills cereals. Talk about childhood memories for some of us!! They are very fun to look at, and of course yummy to eat too! 

You can find coupons for these cereals by visiting this website!

Aren't these cereal boxes awesome?? I just love the cute bowl on the Lucky Charms box!

My daughter devoured her favorite, Lucky Charms and I decided to whip up a batch of Reese's PB Puff Bars!

These bars are super quick to make and are a perfect snack for any time of the day. We ate some, and I dropped some off with a few family and friends. Everyone loved them! Enjoy!

Reese's PB Puffs Bars (click here to print recipe)

What you need:
3 tablespoons butter
1- 10 ounce bag mini marshmallows
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 cups Reese's PB Puffs Cereal
sprinkles, optional

Grease or line a 9x13 glass baking dish with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, melt butter for about 30 seconds. Add the mini marshmallows, stir to coat. Microwave for another minute or until marshmallows are melted and puffy. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla, then add cereal and stir until cereal is completely coated. Pour into 9x13 pan and spread evenly. Add sprinkles if desired. Cool completely, then cut into squares!
