  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF (177ºC). Spray a 9×13 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray or coat with butter. Set aside
  2. Prepare Snack Bars: Add pretzels to food processor and pulse into fine crumbs. You should get about 2 cups of crushed pretzels. Add melted butter to pretzel crumbs and mix thoroughly to coat pretzel crumbs. Press into the bottom of greased pan in an even layer. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top of the crust. Sprinkle on top of sweetened condensed milk the chocolate chunks followed by the rice cereal then topping with the pretzel pieces. Press toppings down firmly using your hands so pieces are held in place. 
  3. Bake: Bake in preheated oven for 20 – 25 minutes or until top of cereal bars are just starting to brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely then cut into squares and serve


Wrap snack bars tightly with plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to a week. Store in the refrigerator to keep longer. These should keep for a few weeks in the fridge
