Bran Flakes cereal, or similar
raisins or chopped dates
Mix together cereal, oatmeal, nuts, and raisins.
Mix butter, honey, and brown sugar in saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir constantly and boil for 5-6 minutes.
Pour melted butter mixture over cereal. Toss to coat evenly.
Grease a 9x9" pan. Press mixture into pan evenly, press very hard.
Let sit 1 hr., then cut.
These have a tendency to stay soft, they still
taste good. To make sure they get hard (bar-like).
1. Measure the cereal, nuts, and fruit slightly less
2. Cook the butter mixture 6 min. instead of 5 min.
Also, sustain a "decent" boil not just a simmer,
but don't go overboard either.
3. Press the mixture into the pan VERY hard. This is the most important step. Don't worry about the flakes breaking. With too much air, they will not form bars.
