Kudos Bars

Posted on

Wow, making Kudos Bars at home is like bringing back a piece of my childhood! I used to sneak two or three of these every day! If I had to pick one snack that screams “nostalgia,” it would definitely be Kudos Bars! Sadly, they were discontinued when I was still a kid. But hey, let’s recreate them at home, and guess what? They’ll be even better!

Kudos Bars

Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Course Dessert
Servings 18


**For the Granola Bar:**

  • 3 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 1 cup of quick oats
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of corn syrup
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of peanut butter optional
  • 6 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

**For Assembly:**

  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup of M&Ms
  • 1 cup of milk or semi-sweet chocolate melted


  • In a pot over medium heat, mix together brown sugar, corn syrup, peanut butter (if using), unsalted butter, salt, and vanilla extract.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • Once boiling, reduce the heat and let it simmer for 4 to 5 minutes until it thickens like a sauce.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine Rice Krispies cereal with quick oats.
  • Pour the sauce over the cereal mixture and stir with a rubber spatula until combined.
  • Line a 9×9-inch pan with parchment paper and press the mixture into one flat layer.
  • Chill in the fridge for about an hour until it’s cool and set.
  • Once set, remove from the pan and cut into individual granola bars.
  • Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring each time until smooth.
  • Dip the bottom of each bar into the melted chocolate and place them on a tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Drizzle more chocolate on top of each bar and sprinkle mini M&Ms over them.
  • Chill in the fridge or freezer for 10 to 20 minutes until the chocolate hardens.
  • Enjoy your homemade Kudos Bars!


Store the bars at room temperature in an airtight container for up to one week. They make a perfect nostalgic treat anytime!
