No Bake Peanut Butter Cereal Treats

These fun treats are perfect for your Memorial Day or 4th of July celebrations – and the best part is that they require no baking, so it won’t heat up your kitchen. Plus, they are simple enough to have the kids help you – and I guarantee they will enjoy eating them, too!


The ingredients are simple and are probably items you already have around the house. We used CapN Crunch cereal, but you could use Rice Krispies or any other cereal that your family enjoys. We used the Star Molds to make them Patriotic, however, this recipe could be used with any mold you want – so you can make these year round!

  • 1 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 cup light Karo Syrup

  1. Melt blue or red Candy Melts (about a 2 spoonfuls) in the bottom of each mold

  4. Place mixture in each cup and pack down
  5. Insert the candy stick
  6. Let sit and harden (place in freezer to help it set)

  8. Place in freezer
