Cheerios Caramel Crisp Bars ~ No Baking!

Our refrigerator always (well, almost always,) has that yellow box of Cheerios on top of it (Btw, where do you keep your boxes of cereal??)

Everyone loves munching on them, even without the bowl, spoon and milk because a) it's easy b) it's easy and c) they are crunchy, healthy, and delicious. Did I mention they make an easy snack?? 

So I was on the Cheerios website today looking around, and look what I came across- this awesome, easy, and delicious-sounding recipe for caramel crisp bars! I have not made these-just want to be honest here-but I so plan to! But since I found this recipe like 5 minutes ago, I still need to go buy the caramels.

I can't wait to try these out and see what my kids think of them (if you have made or do make them before I do-please let me know what you think~pretty please!)
