Kellogg's® Rice Krispies®
Original recipe yields 24 servings
A great recipe which I've made since I was a kid (40+ years ago!) Some tips - just let the sugar/corn syrup mixture come to a light boil and get it off the heat. Also, don't press it tightly into the pan because it will be too hard to bite and too hard to cut into squares. I always cut mine in the pan immediately after putting the melted chips on top; otherwise it is more difficult after it is set. I hope you enjoy these as much as my family and I have!
These are a family favorite. I make these every year at Christmas. In fact, I make several batches. For the people that say they are hard as a brick, you are cooking the sugar/corn syrup mixture too long. All you are supposed to be doing is bringing it to a boil and then get it off of the heat. Also, don't pack them hard into the pan, just lightly press and smooth them out. These are in no way hard as a rock. They are chewy and yummy!!
I've made this recipe for the past 25 years....and called it Special K Bars...as they used to be made with Special K cereal when the flakes used to be smaller! Now I use rice krispies. I heat the syrup and sugar in a big tupperware bowl in the microwave for about 90 seconds, add the peanut butter, and stir in the krispies. I use a much larger pan---12x17 sheet pan--as my daycare kids like them MUCH thinner--and they are easier to cut into 1x1 squares! After frosting with the melted chips, I decorate each square w/ an M&M of the current season--red and green for X-mas, etc! Always a hit...and so easy to have all the ingredients on hand for a quick & easy treat to mix up!
