Tiger Paws Cereal Bars

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!

  2. Oh my, don't these look wonderful!

  3. Oh my gosh, I haven't eaten Frosted Flakes since 1992, when I was pregnant with my son. I ate them obsessively for 5 months straight and never touched them after that! I may have to try them again 🙂

  4. Good golly – these sound fabulous!

  5. Oh. My. Goodness. These look SO DELICIOUS! Adding these to my "must-make" list!

  6. Only 6 ingredients? Amazing! My kids will LOVE these!!

  7. Mmm I love making cereal bars with more than puffed rice cereal! Especially if there is peanut butter involved!

  8. I think this is the perfect way to celebrate National Chocolate Peanut Butter Day! YUM!

  9. so crunchy and simple and delish!

  10. Oh, these are a blast from the past! LOVE these babies!!!

  11. This is now my favorite day…who knew 🙂

  12. I saw these on Instagram and knew I had to come over for the recipe! Yum!

  13. Oh my gosh, those sound delicious! Chocolate and peanut butter are just one of those perfect combinations, aren't they!?

  14. I never heard of tiger paws, so I was very intrigued to read about your recipe when you signed up. I'll have to try these out as Frosted Flakes was one of my favorite cereals growing up.

  15. I never had these made with sugared corn flakes, different!

  16. Now that's one tiger paw I wouldn't mind coming in contact with!

  17. What a fun take on Rice Krispies treats! I have a feeling my kids would think these were g-r-r-e-e-a-a-t!

  18. Oh my gosh. I LOVE peanut butter and cornflake treats. They're way more addicting than you'd figure for cereal and peanut butter! These look especially awesome. 🙂

  19. I love that you used Frosted Flakes instead of Rice Krispies cereal! They look fantastic! I have some leftover Corn Flakes that would probably taste awesome in these bars.

  20. Chocolate and peanut butter is my most favorite combination EVER! Love these bars and wish I had one right now for a little late night snacking 🙂

  21. 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!

  22. Love how simple but decadent these are!

  23. Wow, these look good. I'll take two. Pinned.
