For some reason, men always seem to go gah-gah over these. :) They are very easy to make, and it is a great way to use up the end of the corn flakes. I also like this recipe because it uses fewer ingredients than all the other ones I have seen.
- 3 cups corn flakes, crushed
- 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup white corn syrup
- 6 ounces chocolate chips
- Heat peanut butter, sugar and corn syrup over low heat to melt. Stir in cereal.
- Pat into a 8x8 lightly greased pan. (I line my pan with foil and then lightly spray it. When it is time to cut them, the foil lifts right out.).
- Melt chocolate chips over low heat or in the microwave and spread over top. Cool until firm.
I could eat the whole pan myself! I used creamy peanut butter, powdered sugar, and Rice Krispies instead of corn flakes because I never buy corn flakes. So good! These will replace my Buckeye recipe because it is so much easier than rolling the peanut butter into balls and dipping in chocolate!!
Tastes just like a Crispy Crunch bar!!! Will surely make these again. Made on Friday night, snacked all weekend, served for dessert one night, gave some to BIL for his b-day, and there are barely any left on Monday morning. Made with smooth PB and golden corn syrup (what I had on hand). Added 1 T margarine to the choc chips mainly for easier cutting. The directions could be a little more explicit. I wasn't sure if the flakes were supposed to be measured before or after crushing (chose to measure before crushing and it worked out fine), or how much things had to be melted (till the sugar is totally dissolved?), but it all worked out ok as it is a pretty forgiving concoction. This would be a good recipe to make with kids helping as it is really quick so they won't loose interest.
Great recipe! I made tiny balls of the mixture and drizzled chocolate to make pretty, bite sized treats!
