Cheery, Oh! Bars

Many of you know I have a serious love of baking and the harder the recipe the more I want to make it, but sometimes I like a quick and easy recipe that I can toss together and still get raves from the hubby. The hardest part of this recipe is unwrapping all the caramels!

Ingredients 

14 ounces of caramels  

1/4 cup water

1/2 cup peanut butter
4 cups Cheerios cereal
1 cup salted peanuts
1/2 cup peanut butter chips

Topping
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 stick butter

Directions

In a large microwave-safe bowl, heat caramels, water and 1/2 cup peanut butter on high for 1 minute; stir. Microwave 1 minutes longer or until melted. While microwaving mix cereal, peanut butter chips, and peanuts add to caramel mix and stir until coated. Spread into a buttered 9 x13  pan. 
 
Next microwave chocolate chips, butter and remaining peanut butter on high for 45 seconds and stir until smooth. Spread over cereal mixture. Refrigerate till firm and cut into squares. Don't plan on having them around long!
