You can go to http://www.kelloggs.com and get the rice krispie recipe right online.
As for making them with other cereals I do it all the time.
Cheerio bars (using plain cheerio's instead of rice cereal) was a big hit. Also I have used that cheap wheat puff cereal instead of the rice too. Btw, the "newest" version on the cereal bar that I have noticed lately cracks me up.
Muffin bars. Now what is the difference between a regular muffin and one that is in a bar shape? Except that people are buying it waaaay overpriced and from a box?
If I wanted muffin bars I would put the batter in a square pan, cut when cooled into bar shapes and put in snack size baggies. Then I would about the same amount as in those boxes.
REC: Energy Bars
I have not tried this recipe, but just got it from a friend today.
I thought I would send it along to answer a request for
Cereal Energy Bars

1/4 cup Pitted dates, chopped

1/4 cup Honey
1/4 cup Corn syrup
Toss the peanuts, dates, raisins and cereal in a mixing bowl. Add the
peanut butter, honey and corn syrup to a saucepan. Bring to a boil,
stirring constantly. Pour over the mixture and blend well. Press into a
lightly buttered baking pan. Cook at 350 for 10 minutes. Cool and cut into

REC: SUPER DADDY BARS
SUPER DADDY BARS
1 1/2 to 3 cups of Grape Nuts cereal
1 package of dates, figs, or prunes (8 to 12 oz, depending on brand)
2 tsp grated lemon zest
1 tsp cinammon or 1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup of raisins
Put everything but the raisins in a food processor and process for 4
minutes. Add the raisins and process for 1 more minute. Shape into whatever
shape you want... I've heard that dinosaurs and Power Rangers are especially
tasty. It's a little sticky; they're easier to shape if you dip your hands
in water occasionally. They come out of the food processor a bit warm and
soft; they firm up as they cool. I wrap them individually (plastic wrap,
aluminum foil or waxed paper) so they don't stick together and refrigerate them.
All proportions are flexible. The consistency is determined by the
fruit/cereal ratio: more fruit makes them chewier, more cereal makes them
more crumbly. The prunes are stickiest, so they need more cereal (closer to
3 cups); the dates need the least (closer to 1 1/2 cups). Figs are
somewhere in the middle.
Also, adding the raisins near the end leaves little raisin chunkies that
offer a nice textural contrast. Other dried fruits (peaches, apricots, etc.)
would probably be good too.
They keep well for a week or so, although they get firmer as they get older.
