Chocolate Peanut Butter bars...



...aka Special K bars!  These are so simple to make and they are pretty darn good too.  At first I was worried because I stuck them in the freezer to harden the chocolate before cutting, and before I knew it, they were rock solid.  (My dad was like mmm, let me have one... then he couldn't even bite into it, haha!)  But I let them thaw out completely and they softened up.



(My mom said she even heated her's a little, like 5-10 sec, in the microwave and that they were even better warm!)

Want some?  Here's the recipe:

Special K bars
adapted from cooks.com

1 c. sugar
1 c. light Karo syrup
1 1/2 c. peanut butter (I used crunchy)
6 c. Special K Cereal

Chocolate Topping:

2 Hershey's candy bars
3/4 c. peanut butter

Bring sugar and syrup to a boil but then immediately turn heat down to low. Add peanut butter, stirring until melted completely. Pour over Special K and mix well. Put in a buttered 9 x 13 inch pan. (Put wax paper on top and smash down to flatten into the pan) Melt Hershey's bars and peanut butter together in the microwave, then spread on top.

That's it, enjoy!
