Buying Cocoa Puffs Cereal at Walmart to make Coconutty Cocoa Puffs Bars Recipe

Shop at Walmart for Cocoa Puffs cereal in the Cereal aisle. I picked up the Family Size at my Walmart so that it will last longer in our household of four (including two growing boys). Plus the Family Size is a better value for your money and Walmart has it at an everyday low price.

Making Coconutty Cocoa Puffs Bars Recipe with my son to make memories in the kitchen

I have fond memories of cooking with my mom when I was a kid, and I hope to make similar memories with my children. But it’s not just about making memories, it’s about teaching kids how to measure, how to follow recipe directions, and how to use all the tools and appliances in the kitchen. My oldest son and I had a lot of fun making this stovetop recipe and he did most of the work while I supervised. He’s having so much fun he doesn’t even know he’s learning valuable life skills that will serve him when he heads off to college.

Coconutty Cocoa Puffs Bars Recipe

We live in Houston where it gets really hot in the summer, so a no-bake treat like my Coconutty Coca Puffs Bars is perfect for those hot summer days. I love that it just involves melting ingredients on the stovetop then sticking everything in the refrigerator. You can’t get much easier than that!

Coconutty Cocoa Puffs Bars Recipe

Here’s a closeup of these delicious bars. I added coconut to the top because I love the flavor and texture it adds. When you look at them the first thing you think is “chocolate” but it’s really almond butter mixed with unsweetened cacao powder.

Here’s my recipe to print and try at your house:

Quick no-bake cereal bars recipe

  2. Mix together all ingredients until melted
  3. Add in Cocoa Puffs cereal and mix with a spatula until all cereal is evenly coated
  4. Scoop out the hot mixture carefully onto a wax-lined 9x13 sheet pan that you sprayed with non-stick spray (to keep bars from sticking to the was paper). Use a spatula to press it down for an even thickness.

  6. Remove from refrigerator and cut into squares with a pizza cutter or a knife. Store extra bars in the refrigerator.
