These are yummy! I also used light corn syrup, not knowing what white syrup is. And I made individual bites by using a mini muffin tin with liners. When I added the chocolate/pb to the top, I also added an m&m to each one. The oatmeal texture was not my DD's favorite, but DH said they're "good" and ate 4! - Just changed my rating from 4 stars to 5 - they are even tastier the next day after being in the fridge overnight. I can't stop eating them!

This recipe is so easy to make! I used dark chocolate chips. I also used white chips with the peanut butter and just plain old peanut butter chips. Any way you make it still comes out delicious! Thank littleturtle for such a great recipe! I plan to take these on our long trip for a great snack! I baked mine for 30 minutes.

These tasted fab - but a bit hard to serve elegantly - mine were a bit all over the place.But this did not alter taste and they were consumed with gusto by all. I was unsure what white syrup was and used Caro corn syrup and I really like the saltiness of the peanut butter with the sweetness of the base - there will be requests to do these again so thanks to littleturtle.
