I had some Rice Chex left from the Peanut Butter Chex Bars and decided to try a chocolate variation. Yum.
I found the recipe for the original bars at http://www.simpleorganizedliving.com/.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Chex Bars
6 cups Rice Chex cereal
1/2 cup party peanuts
1 c. honey or corn syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
4 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
Handful of Chocolate Chips (for good measure!)
Line a 9 X 13 pan with wax paper.
In a large bowl, mix cereal, chocolate chips and peanuts; set aside
In a small saucepan, hear corn syrup, cocoa and sugar over medium heat, stirring constantly.
Stir in peanut butter until smooth. Remove from heat.
Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal mixter; toss until evenly coated.
Press firmly in pan. Cool 15 minutes. (if you can wait that long!)
Let me know if you give them a try!
Please see my side bar for all the great parties I'll be linking up to!
