    It's been a while since I made rice crispy bars. I don't remember using sugar and corn syrup. Anyway, I used dark corn syrup and cheerios, because that is what I had, and I needed to use up the cheerios. They turned out nice and gooey. I liked that, but they were sweeter than I like and didn't taste very much like peanut butter. Oh well, maybe I can modify this next time. Thank you for sharing.<br/><br/>Update: They were so gooey because I didn't wait long enough to try them. The next day they were better, but I discovered that I had made them too thick. That made them hard to eat. Still tasted good, though. Still need more peanut butter. I can't seem to stop eating them. All that sugar is going to kill me yet. (And my DH, who is diabetic, but won't leave these alone.)

    I liked the flavor,but I must have meaured wrong-it was a little too gooey.

    Made these for my family, the kid's and my dad loved them but I found them too sweet. I think next time I might leave out the corn syrup and maybe some of the sugar.

    Made these as an after-school snack for my GD and her friends and the pan was gone in no time flat. The little bit they left me was pretty darn good. TFS!
