Peanut Butter Panda Puffs

This cereal, referenced above, is absolutely good, for a few reasons. First, it tastes just like Peanut Butter Cap n Crunch, only a little less sweet and a little more peanutbuttery. Yumm!

Also, you can find it in most stores, either in the cereal aisle or the health foods section.

And lastly, if you crush it, you can use it to make an awesome recipe I'm sure you're all familiar with, 7-Layer Bars. The crushed cereal can be used instead of the crushed graham crackers, and peanut butter chips instead of butterscotch. While I don't have a picture of this, yet, I will post the recipe, as it is delicious.

7 Layer Bars

1 1/2 cups crushed PB Panda Puffs cereal
1/2 cup butter or margerine, melted
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup peanut butter flavored chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Heat oven to 350. In bowl, combine cereal and butter. Press into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Pour milk evenly over crust. Layer chips, coconut and nuts over top. Press down with fork. Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool before cutting.

I used to make them all the time too, but haven't in a while. I vow to bake a batch, just to get the picture to post. Plus, then I'd get to eat them.

I just made these and they turned out great. ]
However, if I were to make them again, I'd only put half of all the chips and nuts and coconut on top, bake for 20 minutes then sprinkle the rest on top for a more chippy look. Everything melted together a little too much.
