Tiger Paws Cereal Bars

Sharing is caring!

Chocolate and Peanut Butter is a classic combination that only gets better when mixed with frosted cornflake cereal and marshmallows. These chocolate-drizzled tiger paws cereal bars are not only good…they’re GRRREAT!

Today I’m sharing a recipe for something that I haven’t made since my boys were little.

These no-bake tiger paw cereal bars are always a huge hit and since they’re a no-bake treat, they’re super simple for anyone to make.

Why this recipe works?

These Chocolate Drizzled Peanut Butter Tiger Paws are very similar to those little puffed rice cereal treats (you know the ones).

The difference is that in place of the puffed rice cereal, sweetened corn flakes are used along with creamy peanut butter.

They’re then mixed with melted marshmallows and butter (how bad can that be?) and then pressed into a 9 x 13 pan.

Once cooled, they’re cut into squares and drizzled with melted chocolate…making them not only good but GRRRREAT!!

Can chunky peanut butter be used in this recipe?

Yes! Swap out an equal amount.

Can other kinds of nut of butter be used for this recipe?

Yes! Swap out an equal amount of your favorite nut butter.

Can the chocolate be omitted from this recipe?

Sure thing. It’s completely up to you!

Can other forms of flavoring chips be used?

Of course!

Why not try white chocolate chips or even cinnamon chips for something completely different.

Can add-ins be used for this no-bake cereal bar recipe?

Oh yum! Let’s make a list of some…

  • toffee chips
  • crushed cookies
  • mini candy pieces
  • gummy snacks
  • jelly beans
  • broken candy bars
  • cinnamon candy
  • chopped nuts
  • pretzel pieces
  • peanut butter filled pretzels
  • caramel corn
  • jimmies
  • brownie pieces
  • You get the idea. Go wild and have fun!

Can other cereals be used?

Yes! Sure!

The name Tiger Paws Cereal Bars stems from the fact that these are made from sweetened frosted cornflakes, but I’m good with any type of cereal swap-out you’d like to make.

It’s completely your call!

I recently made some rice krispie treats with peanut butter and chocolate; something about that combination of crispy along with chocolate and peanut butter was SO good. These look similar and am now dying to try Frosted Flakes - boy is that a blast from the past!
