8 tsps. creamy peanut butter
8 tsp. grape jelly
1/4 c. chopped unsalted peanuts
2 tbsp. confectioners' (powdered) sugar

1 pkg. (10 oz.) honey flavored graham crackers(bear shaped is what Claire likes)
2 cups miniature pretzels
1/2 cup butter, melted

In a large bowl, combine the first four ingredients. In a small bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Pour over cereal and toss to coat. Spread into 2 ungreased 15 inch X10X1 baking pans. You can use 13's, it will just be a little thicker.
