Chocolate Peanut Butter Cereal Bars

- Coat a 9x9" pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. In a large sauce pan, melt peanut butter (or SunButter) over medium-low heat. When melted, remove from heat and stir in rice cereal until well-coated. Press cereal mixture evenly into the bottom of the pan. Set aside.
