Have you heard the quote, "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels". That person never at these.
I make these all the time, but they don't photograph well and so I never blog about them. I got the recipe from my friend Melanie-(my sister makes them too and calls them O'Henry Bars). They are the perfect treat. Sweet from the chocolate, salty from the peanut butter and crunch from the cereal-yummy. (and they are super-easy).
1 cup Corn Syrup
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Peanut Butter
6 cups rice cereal
1/2 bag of chocolate chips (my daughter uses the entire bag, but I think it throws off the perfect chocolate-PB ratio.)
In a large pan, heat first 3 ingredients just until warm and blended (it only takes 2-3 minutes). Add cereal. Put in the bottom of a 13X9 pan. Lick the spoon-that's your reward for making a treat.
Heat chocolate chips in the microwave at 30 second intervals until melted. Stir between intervals. Spread on top of cereal. Let cool (I stick them in the freezer for a few minutes, b/c I'm impatient).
