Peanut Butter and Cornflake Squares

I changed these bars up a bit, added honey nut cheerios. Also added the ganache from the Chocolate Chip Cookies with Ganache Stuffing on top. Loved the additions would make them again for sure.

I have decided to start adding a Photo A Week with my recipe. Hope you all enjoy them.

Sounds like a nice change of pace from the usual rice cereal treats. I love the sound of those different crunchy shapes together!
