1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
4 1/2 cups chocolate-flavored puffed corn cereal
2 ounces chocolate-flavored candy coating, melted, or 1/2 cup
semisweet chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon shortening melted together
Combine sugar, honey and corn syrup in a large sauce pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until peanut butter mixture is smooth.
Combine peanut butter mixture and cereal in a large mixing bowl.
Press cereal mixture into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan which has been sprayed with nonstick vegetable cooking spray. Drizzle melted chocolate over the top. Cool and cut into squares.
Makes about 24 bars.
NOTE: Make drop cookies by dropping the cereal mixture by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper and drizzling chocolate over top. Makes about 60 drop cookies.
