These easy No Bake Chocolate Granola Bar Bites can be made in minutes. They are the perfect chocolate snack for after school or on the go in the morning.
With three growing kids in our house, we go through a lot of snacks throughout the week. They are always “starving” when they get home from school. If I have to do a grocery store run after school, they are not too happy with me, unless we pick up some snacks there to eat on the way home.
Granola bars are an easy to grab snack from the store. We have gone through so many boxes over the years for breakfast and snacks.
Over the years I have gone back and forth on making versus buying bars. Homemade granola bars are seriously so easy to make and have on hand. These No Bake Nutella S’mores Granola Bars never last very long at all when we make a pan.
Some weeks I buy a few boxes of granola bars out of convenience. They are pre-packaged making it so easy to fill the glass jars on our counter. With three kids in sports and all the other life things we do, I have no problem grabbing a box from time to time.
But homemade granola bars are truly so easy to do. And if you buy the snack baggies, there is no reason why you can’t create your own packaged treats, when you have the time.
Making No Bake Chocolate Granola Bar Bites:
To make these bars, you need to melt the butter with some sugar and honey to create a syrup that will hold everything together.
Stir in the oats, cocoa powder, cereal, and sprinkles until everything is coated. Press this mixture firmly into a buttered pan.
Let it cool and then top it with some chocolate and more sprinkles before cutting them into bite sized pieces. You can also cut them into larger pieces and have full sized granola bars.
PRO TIP: use sprinkles to match whatever season or holiday it is. Since it is October, I used a fun Halloween mix. I’m seeing a chocolate granola bar with peppermint chunks happening in a few months though…
