Yard Sale season is in full swing! I love to take a Saturday and hop yard sales and thrift shops---hunting for treasures and adding things to my never-ending wish list! It's a snack day for me, so I love to grab a SNICKERS® and a soda for when I'm losing energy and need to refuel. SNICKERS bars are also great additions in these candy bar granola bars---another great on-the-go treat!
SNICKERS is always my go-to candy bar when I need a quick energy boost. The combination of protein and sweet is a great pick-me-up. Dr Pepper has always said "fun" to me, as well, so it's a good choice for my thrift shopping day.
I always buy our Dr Pepper at Walmart in the cooler case right by the self-checkout. I like that it's conveniently located there so I won't forget. It's my husband's favorite pop so I'm usually buying him one a couple times a week.
I buy my SNICKERS 2-to-Go bars near the checkout aisle, as well. When I went to shop for my granola bar ingredients at Walmart, I needed two of these largest sized bars.
Right now, there are a couple of great promotions going on with SNICKERS and Dr Pepper. Print this coupon to take $1.00 off when you purchase (2) SNICKERS® 2-to-go bars and (2) 20 oz Dr Pepper bottles.

Candy Bar Granola Bars
2 ½ cups crispy rice cereal
2 cups oats
½ cup honey or corn syrup
½ cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
(2) 2-to-Go size chocolate candy bars, chopped
Combine cereal and oats in a bowl. Chop candy bars and set aside. In a saucepan, mix the honey, brown sugar and salt. Stir over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil for 30-60 seconds. Don't over-boil! Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla. Pour over the oat mixture and mix well. Let cool for about 10 minutes, then fold in candy bar pieces just until mixed. Press into a greased 9×13 pan and let cool before cutting.
Since we're on the topic of baking with candy bars, make sure you check out my Candy Bar Apple Crisp, as well.
These granola bars are simple to make and they freeze well. Just wrap them in parchment paper and stack them in a gallon-size freezer bag. You can take them out one at a time and enjoy whenever you need to refuel!
