Goody Goody Bars

Because I am addicted to sweet treats when I saw these amazing looking bars on The Brown Eyed Baker’s site I needed to make them ASAP!

Michelle always has the tastiest treats on her site, check her out if you haven’t!

These are kind of like a kicked up Rice Krispies square, except with corn flakes, peanut butter and chocolate. So not really like Rice Krispies squares at all…but tasty all the same!

What you need,

1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup salted, dry-roasted peanuts, chopped
6 cups cornflakes
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Start by lining a 9x13 inch baking dish with tinfoil. Spray the foil well with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large saucepan combine the brown sugar and corn syrup. Heat over medium low heat until the sugar dissolves and the mixture starts to boil, stirring constantly.

Remove from the heat and stir in the peanut butter and chopped peanuts until the mixture is smooth. Stir in the corn flakes.

Working quickly, press the mixture into the prepared pan in an even layer.

Let the mixture cool completely then top with the chocolate.

To melt the chocolate chips, put them in a large microwave safe bowl. Heat them at medium power in 30 second intervals, stirring at each stop until melted and smooth.

Pour over the bars and spread in an even layer.

Let the chocolate cool completely then you can use the tinfoil sling to remove the bars from the pan and cut into small squares.

Store bars in an airtight container for up to a week.

These bars are addictive, I warn you!

They would make a great addition to your holiday cookie swap! You just can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate!
