Chocolate Peanut Butter Chex Bars

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!)



Results:

Although I loved the peanut butter, I love-loved the chocolate peanut butter.  Sometimes I feel like just peanut butter.  Sometimes I feel like the choco-pb combo.

These were so good.  I took them to Coffee Break at Church and they were gone in no time.  Only crumbs left.  Crumbs taste great too you know.
Here's a close-up.


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!
