Gorp Bars © 1985

2 cups bite-size crispy cereal squares*
2 1/2 cups thin pretzel sticks, broken in half
1 1/2 cups "M&M's" Plain or Peanut Chocolate Candies
1 cup banana chips
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
5 cups miniature marshmallows


Combine the cereal, pretzels, candies, banana chips and raisins in a large bowl; set aside. Melt together butter and peanut butter in 3-quart saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows; stir occasionally until marshmallows are melted and smooth. Immediately pour marshmallow mixture over cereal mixture, mixing until thoroughly coated. Press lightly into a greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Let stand until firm. Cut into bars and serve. Makes 2 1/2 dozen bars.

*I'm assuming this means something like Chex cereal.

are banana chips like dried bananas, or like chocolate chips? I really have no clue.

iportion-
It kinda does. Kudos be good! Esp. with peanut butter. :)

Terri-
Yep, dried bananas, in chip form. Our store (Kroger) carries them on the same aisle that has the canned fruit/raisins, etc. And you know what? Even though I am not a fan of bananas, banana chips are one of the few dried fruits that I like, next to pineapple and apricots. Texture is a weird thing. LOL!
