Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares


Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares

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.

Ingredients
  • 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


Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Grease the bottom and sides of a 1 inch deep baking sheet.
  3. Crush the corn flakes in a large bowl.  Mix in the peanut butter.
  4. 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.
  5. Pat the mixture into the cookie sheet.
  6. 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.
  7. Cool before cutting into 1-2 inch squares.


Notes
  1. Do NOT store in the refrigerator.
  2. A great place to cool these before cutting into squares is outside, as long as the weather is chilly, of course!
