Captain Crunch Popcorn Bars



This recipe came to me in an email but it used Granola Bars. I am a cereal kind of girl NOT a granola girl. I am not a fan of granola.

So after some some rearranging of ingredients this is what I liked.

And of course it has cereal in.

This makes 36 bars so if you have a potluck a bakesale or just want to please everyone in the neighborhood, here you go.
