Peanut Caramel Chews

We are a household that stocks frosted flakes always and always means cartons upon cartons of it in the pantry. But for us, this cereal doesn’t go into a bowl of milk for breakfast but into these chewy, gooey caramel chews. They are great to bring for potlucks, to give out as holiday treats or just to keep for a quick pick-me-up snack throughout the day.
