Magic Wand Bars Recipe
2 cups broken pretzel pieces
2 cups Ocean Spray® Craisins® Original Dried Cranberries
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup sugar
1 cup white corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter

Makes 24 Bars

Decorator sprinkles 
Spray a 13x9-inch baking pan with cooking spray. (Or for even easier cutting, line with double thickness of aluminum foil, allowing extra to extend over edges and then spray with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine cereal, pretzels, dried cranberries and chocolate chips.
In a 2-quart saucepan, heat sugar and corn syrup over medium heat until sugar is dissolved; reduce heat to low. Stir in peanut butter just until smooth. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then pour over cereal mixture, stirring until all pieces are coated. Spread in pan, pressing with wet fingers until even. Sprinkle with decorator sprinkles. Let cool at least 1 hour or until bars are firm.

If using aluminum foil, lift bars from pan using foil handles; remove foil. Place on cutting board. With long sharp knife, cut bars crosswise into 12 strips. Cut lengthwise through center.

Variation: For Caramel Magic Wand Bars, omit the sugar, corn syrup and peanut butter. Instead, in medium microwavable bowl, heat 1 package (11 oz) caramel bits and 2 tablespoons milk 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, or until completely melted and mixture is well blended. Pour over cereal and continue as directed above.
 Junior Lava Lamp
6 ounces ginger ale or lemon-lime soda, chilled *
1 teaspoon Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries, any flavor
Decorative straw
Pour ginger ale into an 8 oz. clear tumbler or tall narrow glass. Add dried cranberries and a decorative straw. After a moment, cranberries will begin to slowly float up and down in glass, like a lava lamp. Garnish with a decorative straw. Makes 1 serving.

* Tip: Make colorful lava lamps, use cranberry or raspberry-flavored ginger ale, orange soda or apple-flavored sparkling cider. Any carbonated, lightly-colored beverage will work.
