Potluck Sunday~ Fun No Bake Bars

I received this recipe in a DVO.com news letter. The picture looked really yummy, so I saved the recipe. I just got around to buying M&Ms, so I figured I better make these, before the kids and I ate them all. These were super simple to make and taste so good. They are totally not good for you, but taste YUMMY, LOL. The recipe made such a big batch, that I gave some to our neighbours, who said the kids went crazy for them. Crunchy cereal, chewy peanut buttery coating and chocolate bits throughout. What could be better. I also love these since you don't need to use the oven, so they are a perfect summer treat!!

In a large bowl, combine first 3 ingredients; set aside. In a saucepan, bring corn syrup, peanut butter and sugar to a boil, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla.
