I wanted to make something new but didn't feel like actually baking so I pulled this no-bake recipe out of my "Recipes to Try" folder.
I originally found the recipe at http://www.simpleorganizedliving.com/.
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
Line a 9 X 13 pan with wax paper.
In a large bowl, mix cereal and peanuts; set aside
In a small saucepan, hear corn syrup 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!)
I loved it. Doug loved it. The girls didn't like the peanuts in it but that is normal for kids, I guess. Oh well, more for us.
Rice Chex is my favorite of all the Chex cereals. Add peanut butter and sugar and yum, yum, yum.
Here's a close-up.
I'll be taking these to Prayer Meeting/Bible Study tonight to share or else I'd probably eat them all.
These would be great for a picnic or game night. 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!
