  • Cheerios– You will need the Strawberry, Berry cheerios.

How to Make Cereal Bars

Add half a stick of butter into a large roasting pot over medium heat.

Take the bars out of the fridge and slice them into 2 by 3-inch pieces.

Place the chocolate into a heat-safe bowl and melt in the microwave.

Pick up one of the bars and dip one side in the melted chocolate. Then, add some more on top by drizzling.

Top with one fresh strawberry on top.

Place the bars on parchment paper and allow the chocolate to harden and set for at least an hour.

Serve and Enjoy!

How Long are Homemade Cereal Bars Good?

The length of time your cereal bars last depends on the place they are stored. If left at room temperature, they may last for about 2-3 days in a sealed container. Whereas, storing in the fridge or freezer will add more time to this. Be sure to seal in a container and use wax paper to place in between each bar.

Can I Use Different Fruit Flavors for this Cereal Bar Recipe?

These recipe flavors are perfect for this recipe. The berries and cream are perfect together and I always recommend trying out a recipe before switching any ingredients. However, you can use other fruits if you want.
