GrapeNuts Peanut Butter Bars

I found this recipe in a cookbook of my sister-in-law's and made it several times last school year. They are a great little treat for after school or in a lunchbox. I kind of forgot about them for a while and recently came across the recipe again and decided to make them today. Since I hadn't blogged them yet, here they are!
The Ingredients:

3/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
4 cups Grape Nuts (or a reasonable facsimile!)

Mix together the peanut butter, corn syrup and sugar in a microwavable bowl.

Microwave for 2 minutes or just before boiling and smooth. Stir after each minute.

Add cereal and mix well.

Press cereal mixture firmly into bottom of a 13 x 9 dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

Cool completely. I like to sprinkle some chocolate chips on the top too. They will melt and then I spread them all over the top before cutting into squares.

Cut into pieces. They don't need to be big. This is a rich little treat and good work for your jaws. A little goes a long way!

  1. Yum! I used to make something similar before E came along; he's allergic to peanuts so it would be cruel to make them now. But they tasted wonderful!
