What you need

1 cup large flake oats
1 cup round toasted oats cereal
1 cup corn flakes cereal
1 cup crisped rice cereal
¼ cup chopped dried apricots
¼ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup shredded sweetened coconut
½ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup light corn syrup
2 tbsp butter
¼ tsp salt

How to prepare


Grease a 13 x 9-inch (3.5 L) baking dish or line with parchment paper. Set aside. Spread oats on baking sheet. Bake in 325°F (160°C) oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly toasted; let cool.

In large greased bowl, combine oats, toasted oats cereal, corn flakes cereal, crisped rice cereal, SMARTIES, apricots, cranberries and coconut. Set aside.

In saucepan, stir together brown sugar, corn syrup, butter and salt over medium heat; bring to boil. Boil for 5 minutes or until mixture is no longer grainy and forms a firm ball when a small amount is dropped into cold water.

Immediately pour syrup over cereal mixture and toss to coat. Transfer quickly to prepared baking dish; press with greased spatula to make even layer. Let set at room temperature for 1 hour; cut into 16 bars.
