I usually do not buy Special K but had some coupons and they had a great deal at my favorite Publix, so I decided to try something new for the sweet tooth. Very similar to the rice crispi recipe I tried recently and very delicious!
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1 1/4 cups light corn syrup
- 2 cups peanut butter (a creamy, no-stir type works best)
- 6 cups Special K cereal
- 12 ounces (1 bag) semisweet chocolate chips
In large microwave safe bowl, combine sugars and corn syrup and mix well. Microwave on high for 2 minutes; meanwhile, rinse the spoon off with very hot water.
Remove bowl from microwave and stir mixture, scraping down sides of bowl. Return to microwave and microwave on high for another 2 minutes, or until mixture begins to bubble and boil. Again, rinse that spoon!
Remove from microwave and add 1-1/2 cups peanut butter. Stir until mixture is smooth and combined. Add cereal and stir to coat. Pour and press into greased 13×9″ pan, using back of greased spoon to press evenly.
Combine chocolate chips and 1/2 cup peanut butter in small microwave safe bowl. Heat on medium power for 2 minutes; remove and stir. Return to microwave for another 30 seconds if necessary to melt chips. Stir until smooth, then spread over cereal mixture. Let cool completely, then cut into bars. Store, covered, at room temperature. Makes 36
I cut the recipe in half again, just so I could satisfy the sweet tooth but not go crazy!
