Grandma Solberg's Summer Snack Squares

“These are a chewy, no-bake bar that my grandma used to make me as a snack when I would play all day in the summer. It goes without saying that they bring me fond memories, and, while I'm sure it would be possible to make a lower-fat, lower-cal, and lower-sugar version, I wouldn't change a thing! You can really use any cereal you like here - Grandma made them with anything on hand - cornflakes, rice krispies, cheerios, etc. I prefer them with cornflakes.”
