{Recipe} Chocolate Peanut Butter Treat Bars

This post is brought to you by Nature's Path.

One of my favorite things about blogging is introducing you you companies I love. So when I found out that Nature's Path and their Envirokidz line were running an awesome contest that will take winners to Costa Rica (!!!) I was excited to tell you guys about it. Because: Costa Rica! Plus their breakfast foods are pretty awesome.

If you are aren't already familiar with the EnviroKidz line, you definitely want to pick up a box the next time you are at the grocery store. Their cereals are all Organic, GMO free and gluten free. And they taste good. The boxes have interesting information that teaches kids about animals and protecting the environment.

What was that about Costa Rica? EnviroKidz is sending three lucky families on an EnviroTrip to Costa Rica to help save the sea turtles at SEE Turtles, a non-profit wildlife conservation travel operator in the beautiful OSA peninsula. The whole things sounds amazing. Read on at the bottom below my recipe to find out more!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Treat Bars

While the cereals are awesome for eating out of a bowl with milk, they also dress up quite nicely into tasty treats. The combination of chocolate and peanut butter is always a hit. Using the Envirokidz line of organic, GMO and gluten free cereals means that they are something the whole family can enjoy!


  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1 bag (16 oz) marshmallows
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows (optional)
  • Sea salt
  • 4 cups Envirokidz Chocolate Coco Chimps cereal
  • 4 cups Envirokidz Peanut Butter Panda Puffs Cereal


  1. Grease a large glass baking dish with butter or coconut oil.
  2. Melt the butter and the 16 ounce bags of marshmallows in a large pot over medium heat, stirring constantly.
  3. Once melted, remove from heat and stir in a pinch of salt. 
  4. Once salt is well incorporated, stir in cereals. Add mini marshmallows and continue stirring until mixtures is coated in melted marshmallow mixture.
  5. Scrape mixture into baking dish and press down to conform to shape of pan.
  6. Allow to set up until no longer soft.
  7. Cut into squares and serve.

So back to Costa Rica...

EnviroKidz holding a contest where three lucky winners and their families (three groups of 4 people) will get an all-expense paid trip to Costa Rica in March 2015.  They will spend three days working with Costa Rican organization Latin American Sea Turtles to catch endangered green and hawksbill sea turtles in the Golfo Dulce, a beautiful gulf located alongside the Osa Peninsula. They will help researchers set out nets, measure the turtles, and collect important data before releasing them back to the water. In addition, the winners will participate in a mangrove restoration project, helping to plant two species of mangrove trees that are critical to turtles and other wildlife of the Gulf. Finally, the winners will visit a chocolate farm to see how the world’s favorite treat is made!

Amazing right!?

Ten runners up will recieve Envitokidz gift baskets. Not quite as amazing as a trip to Costa Rica - but definitely tasty!
