This recipe was one of Grandpa’s favorite candies. He wanted it on a daily basis.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
1 1/3 cups flour
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2/3 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup (6oz. pkg.) chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups (12 oz. jar) peanut butter
3 cups Rice Krispies Cereal or Corn Flakes
Combine flour, brown sugar, and margarine in mixer bowl. Mix at low speed until blended. (Mixture may be crumbly.) Press into bottom of ungreased 13×9 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
Combine sugar and corn syrup in large saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to boil. Remove from heat. Add chocolate chips and peanut butter. Stir until melted. Stir in Rice Krispies. Spread over base. Cool and cut into bars.
This cookie/candy becomes addicting after one piece. The candy can be made without the crust. When I make it, I usually use a small cookie scoop and make balls. You can use your hands to make balls but be careful because the candy will be warm.
May your day be filled with laughter and sunshine!
