  3. Stir; add peanut butter cook on high 2 minutes longer.
  4. Stir until well blended, add cereal mixture to dish and toss until well coated.
  5. Working quickly with greased hand, form into balls, using about 1/2 C mixture, per ball.
  6. If mixture begins to harden, cook on high for 30 seconds, or until softened.
  7. If desired , mixture may be spread in unbuttered 13x9" dish and cooled and cut into bars.
