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!

In honor of today, March 25th being National Chocolate Peanut Butter Day, I’ve decided to share a recipe for something that I haven’t made since my boys were little.

And quite honestly, I only made them once, maybe twice, back then. But, they’ve not been forgotten, by me, or by them.

These Chocolate Drizzled Peanut Butter Tiger Paws are very similar to those little puffed rice cereal treats except that sugar-coated cornflakes (you know the ones) are used in place of the puffed rice cereal, and then creamy peanut butter is added into the marshmallow mix for an extra punch of flavor, and some delicious peanutty goodness.

Once mixed, you press the Peanut Butter Tiger Paws into a 9×13 pan, allow them to cool, cut them into squares, and drizzle them with chocolate. Be still my tiger beating heart! These are not only good…

Chocolate Drizzled Peanut Butter Tiger Paws Recipe - Kudos Kitchen by Renee


1 bag (10 ounces) mini marshmallows
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
5 cups of sugar-coated cornflake cereal
1½ cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels

-In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in the marshmallows and stir occasionally until fully melted. Stir in the peanut butter until fully incorporated. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and cornflake cereal.

-Press the mixture into a 9×13 pan and allow to fully cool. Once cooled, cut the tiger paws into squares and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

-Place the chocolate morsels in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on medium power at 30-second intervals until completely melted and smooth. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the tiger paws and allow the chocolate to set and harden.

-Serve and enjoy!

Thank you so much for visiting me here in my Kudos Kitchen!!

Until we eat again,


  1. I love these treats! I even have a bag of marshmallows in my pantry that I need to use.

  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.
