No-Bake Ovaltine Cereal Bars

Nonstick cooking spray
2/3 c. honey
1/3 c. creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 c. Ovaltine chocolate mix
1/3 c. dried cherries
3 c. crisp rice cereal
1/2 c. old-fashioned oats
1/3 c. sunflower seed kernels

Line 9-inch square baking pan with foil, allowing a little overhang for lifting bars from pan. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Combine honey and peanut butter in large, microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high for 30 seconds, stirring until smooth. Stir in Ovaltine and vanilla until smooth. Add cereal, oats, cherries and sunflower seed kernels. Gently toss together until completely coated. Pour into prepared pan. With greased hands or a piece of parchment paper, press mixture into an even layer in pan, using as much pressure as you can while keeping it as even as possible. Cover and refrigerate for one hour. Lift bars from pan using foil. Carefully peel foil away and cut into bars. Makes 20 servings.
