The Not-So-Healthy But Really Tastey Trail Bars

All the hiking and biking we've done this summer has had me on the look out for some good bars. After checking some recipes and noticing that they all call for some sort of corn syrup or rice syrup, which I don't really want in my bars, I decided to just throw something together and see how it stuck together.
This was very spur of the moment, this deciding thing. I had a pan with chocolate chips on the stove before I really knew what was happening and when Spence said "whatcha making?" I didn't really have an answer.
I had about 2/3 cup of dark chocolate chips, I added a couple tbsp. honey, two marshmallows, and 3/4 peanut butter. After it was all melted and smooth I poured it over 2 cups of rolled oats, a small bag of Tropical Medley dried fruit and 2/3 cup of sunflower seeds.
I pressed it between two pieces of parchment paper in a baking dish and coerced it into a rectangle. Then I put it in the fridge until it was firm, sliced it up and ate some(maybe two and half). Yum. So good!
It's pretty sweet, I probably didn't need the honey, but it's actually a lot of oats versus chocolate stuff so it's pretty hearty.
What do you do for bars on the go?
