I went looking for these on the net when I couldn't find one of my favorite candy bars locally. These are almost as good as the originals!
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup white corn syrup
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 6 cups corn flakes, crushed
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 3⁄4 cup peanuts
- Butter a 9" X 13" baking pan.
- Heat sugars, syrup, and peanut butter in a heavy saucepan.
- Mix until smooth.
- Combine cornflakes, chocolate chips, and peanuts.
- Pour peanut butter mixture over the cornflake mixture and mix well.
- Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
- Allow to cool before cutting into bars.
My daughter and I made these together. We had such a good time and she absolutly loved them and wants to make them again as soon as the first batch is gone which I am afraid will be very very soon now. I am thinking that maybe next time, I might add a thin layer of melted and cooled chocolate on top or dip them in melted chocolate after cutting and allowing the chocolate to set. I am also considering adding a layer of caramel before the chocolate coating. These are going to be fun to play with.
Great recipe! I added this into my holiday goodie basket and this was by far everyone's (including mine) favorite! After pressing the mixture into the pan I melted some caramel and drizzled over the top. Hmmmm! It was absolutley wonderful! Thank you for the great recipe!
Divine. I took Karen's suggestions and added melted caramels and chocolate to the top of this. There's nothing better than crunchy, chewy, gooey and chocolate, all rolled into one! I used a Chex style cereal instead of flakes, since it's what I had on hand. This is going into my personal Favorite Recipes book!
