I was really excited about this recipe, it’s something I knew everyone would love and it was a great quick and easy treat to throw together, even on a busy week night.
I had a friend in town who happened to be vegan so I cut a few pieces for her before I added the milk chocolate. I was feeling lazy so I just melted the chips in a glass bowl and used a teaspoon to Jackson Pollock the top of the bars.
I have to say, these were perfect. I loved them immediately after they were made and they were amazing in the morning with coffee. They were definitely NOT a morning treat for my boys, they got them in the evening after dinner.
The bars were a yummy and elegant upgrade from the usual cereal concoction: rice crispy treats. These would be great for one of the many bake sales we have at the boys’ school and I know I’ll be making these again sooner than later!
Go over and see what everyone else thought!!
Next up: Antique Caramel Cake!! I’ve wanted to try this one and there are two good things about it–1. It uses ingredients I almost always have on hand 2. It’s only two layers so I shouldn’t have a lot leftover. I’m going to try and plan making this around dinner plans, Baked cakes are always perfect for sharing with friends!

I loved these bars too! But they are definitely only a morning treat for some people!
Very artfully done!
Haha. I went all Jackson Pollock over mine too! 🙂 Great pics…love the little one posing with the bar.
My kids were mad they couldn’t have Good Morning Sunshine Bars for breakfast! Way too much sugar to hold them over from 7 until noon lunchtime!
Love your artful application of the milk chocolate!
I was thinking that these would make a great bake sale treat too!
Nice job– I like the Jackson Pollock effect! That looks like one happy camper in the photo. 🙂 Yes, I can see how it might be hard to explain to kids just *why* they can’t have these cereal bars for breakfast… Chocolate in the morning is one of the perks of being a grownup, I guess!
