    Lea,
    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.

    Default 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 bars.

    Cereal Energy Bars
    Save money by making your own sports-style snacks.

    Makes 12 bars

    1/2 cup Peanuts, chopped
    1/4 cup Pitted dates, chopped
    1/2 cup Raisins
    3 cups Kashi (available at health food stores and some grocery chains)
    1/2 cup Peanut butter
    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
    bars. Store at room temperature.

    Default REC: SUPER DADDY BARS

    SUPER DADDY BARS

    Basic Ingredients
    -----------------
    1 1/2 to 3 cups of Grape Nuts cereal
    1 package of dates, figs, or prunes (8 to 12 oz, depending on brand)

    Optional Additions
    ------------------
    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.
