I needed a quick dessert one day and found this recipe on the rice crispy cereal box. I made a slight modification and we have a winner! This recipe was fast, easy and delicious.
- ½ cup light corn syrup
- ¼ cup sugar
- ¼ cup packed brown sugar
- ½ cup peanut butter
- ¼ cup chocolate chips*
- ¼ cup white chocolate chips*
- 2-1/2 cups rice crispy cereal
Butter an 8-inch square baking pan. Combine corn syrup and sugars in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture just comes to a boil, stirring frequently (don’t over boil or the bars will be dry – when the edges are bubbly, you’re done). Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter until smooth. Quickly add cereal, chocolate chips* and white chocolate chips*, stirring until all pieces are evenly coated. Press into prepared pan with back of buttered spoon. Cool. Cut into squares. Store in airtight container.
*I’ve made this twice and both times I added the chocolate and white chocolate chips. I haven’t made it yet as written and probably won’t. My family thought it sounded bland without the extra chocolate. But that’s just us. If you try it as written, let me know how it turns out.
Also, you can use whatever flavors of chips you want. I used that particular combination because it was what I had in the baking drawer.
