Ingredients

Cereal: With Special-K in the name, it just makes sense to use Special K cereal. Look for the original variety.

Snickers: I used two bags of fun-sized Snickers, each bar cut into about 5 pieces. You will end up with 4 cups of chopped candy bars.

Peanut Butter: Use creamy or crunchy peanut butter.

Baking chips: Both milk chocolate chips and butterscotch chips were melted and added to the bars. If you don’t like butterscotch, you could stick with all milk chocolate chips.

How to Store Snickers Special K Bars

Once these bars have set, they will last for about 4 days at room temperature. Be sure they are in an airtight container.

Can I Freeze the Bars?

Sure! I recommend cutting the bars into individual servings first. Then, place the bars into a freezer-safe container with the layers separated by parchment paper. They will last about 3 months in the freezer.

Well, these are called Special K Bars for a reason. But, you could certainly try other kinds of cereal. You could try these with Rice Krispies or corn flakes to start.

  1. Yes you need to give those away! Like right now! I’ll Facebook you my address if you need it! lol…I think I’m totally bewitched by these! Must have one now!

  2. OMG Amanda!! I was going to make Special K bars for the concession stand this Friday, but now I think I need to try and make these. The “normal” ones were such a big hit last time, I can just image how these will go. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Oh my goodness, these look amazing! I would have to send them away too because I’d likely eat far too many.

  4. When you say white sugar is that granulated sugar/caster sugar in the UK? What can I use if I can’t get the light corn syrup?

  5. 47 Snickers bars! You do win the internet. I absolutely love the way you arranged the snickers pieces on top. And I’m super impressed you had the patience to perfectly chop and place those pieces haha. They would have gone straight in my mouth. 🙂

    1. I have seen some of the gorgeous things you create and know for a fact that you have tonz of patience! But yeah, you are totally right. There may have been quite a few snickers that didnt make it to the bars… 😉
