My, oh my. These are good. I made them Friday evening and ate so many on Saturday, I lost count (and forced myself to run 5 1/2 miles as payment). My mother makes them every year at Christmas and, this year, I just didn't eat enough. Although I'm sure I ate more this past Christmas than I did the previous Christmas. But let's not talk about that.
1 cup sugar
1 cup white corn syrup
1 1/2 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
6 cups Special K cereal
1 - 12 oz. package of chocolate bits/chips
Butter 9 x 13" pan. Set aside. Mix sugar and corn syrup in saucepan. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter. Pour mixture over cereal. Mix well and press into pan. Melt chocolate and pour over cereal mixture in pan. Cool until melted chocolate is set. (Can be put in fridge to set.) Cut into squares. Enjoy.
You need to try these. Seriously. Like today ... They're healthy, right? I mean they have Special K cereal in them. The cereal negates the sugar and corn syrup. Doesn't it?
