I can remember these delicious chocolate peanut butter squares being part of our cookie tray for my whole life. I'm not sure if it's a recipe from the corn flakes people, the peanut butter people or maybe even the corn syrup people. It may have even been created by someone in my family. All I know is that they are a staple during the holidays and everyone loves them! After all, what goes together better than chocolate and peanut butter? I'm sure you'll love every chewy, choccolatey, peanuty bite.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 9 cups corn falkes
- 1 (16 oz) jar of peanut butter
- 1 (12 oz) bag of chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Grease the bottom and sides of a 1 inch deep baking sheet.
- Crush the corn flakes in a large bowl. Mix in the peanut butter.
- In a saucepan, bring the corn syrup and sugar to a boil, stirring frequently. Pour the syrup mixture over the crushed corn flake mixture and combine.
- Pat the mixture into the cookie sheet.
- Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top. Bake for 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and spread the now melted chips evenly over the entire pan.
- Cool before cutting into 1-2 inch squares.
- Do NOT store in the refrigerator.
- A great place to cool these before cutting into squares is outside, as long as the weather is chilly, of course!
