These bars are a delicious alternative to the usual cereal treat bars. Rather than using jelly in these bars, I decided to go with freeze dried strawberries. If you’ve never tried freeze dried strawberries, grab yourself a bag, and enjoy! My kids and I love snacking on them. And they give these bars a tart fruitiness that mimics jelly without all the gooey jelly mess (if you want the gooey jelly goodness, you might like my PB&J sandwich cookies instead). Or, if you’re looking for more easy dessert recipes, you might like my Samoas Chex mix recipe.
