Oh goodness - are these bars GOOD!! Like sinfully good. Like the kind of good where they are worth the calories. Lots of chocolate and peanut butter...how can you go wrong??
When I was making these I didn't think about sharing the recipe until I was part way through putting them together and then I did grab some quick photos for you. This is a recipe off of my pinterest from a pin by prettyplainjanes and you can click on the direct link here. But here is the general idea of how they are made:
First you grease up a bowl and pour 6 cups of chex rice cereal in there. They are gluten free, as is this whole recipe, so if that's something you need to watch our for you can still indulge in these goodies! Then you take a saucepan on the stove and melt a cup of sugar with a cup of light corn syrup (here's where I forgot photos) over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Then take it off the heat and add the peanut butter (lots of it - yum!) and stir it in until it all comes together. Then pour over the cereal and toss to combine. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan.
In another bowl take semi sweet chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, MORE peanut butter and vanilla and melt in the microwave. After about one minute on high, stir, and then do 15-20 second intervals checking and stirring after each time - don't over cook. Once melted pour over the bars. Let set at room temperature.
Look at that glossy goodness! Then wait patiently for that wonderful layer of creamy chocolate to set up over that chewy peanut buttery crunch. Cut yourself a piece, indulge in a heavenly bite and say a prayer it doesn't go right to your hips. Again, this is one of those recipes worth the indulgence!! Enjoy. Here's the recipe:
