“Here is another recipe from the website. "Why wait for the holidays to make a flavor favorite? Rum-Raisin Bars are easy enough to make for a weeknight treat." Substitution - Use orange juice for the rum. You’ll get a slightly different but yummy flavor. How-To: A plastic food-storage bag makes quick work of crushing cereal. Fold or close the open end and squeeze with your hands or roll a can of food over the bag to crush.”
