I try to keep the amount of sweets and carbs I eat to a minimum. But, sometimes things get out of control and my "minimum" just goes flying out the door. That's what's been happening lately with anything Rice Krispie based.
When I had half a box or so of Rice Krispies left, I wanted to make something different where I wouldn't devour the whole pan. I remembered those "Other Rice Krispie Bars" my mom, or grandmother's would make once in a great while, back in the day.
BUT, only make a small pan, that way things won't get out of control!
If you are feeding a family, you can definitely double this recipe and make it in a 9x13, or if you just want to indulge yourself, go ahead and do it that way too!
These are a great chewy no-bake treat, that will satisfy your chocolate and peanut butter cravings!
The Other Rice Krispie Bar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups Rice Krispies
12 oz. milk chocolate chips (use half butterscotch chips if you like)
Butter 9x9 baking pan. Set aside.
In medium saucepan, combine sugar, light corn syrup, and peanut butter. Heat over medium high heat, stirring frequently, until boiling. Remove from heat and stir in Rice Krispies until completely mixed. Lightly press into prepared pan.
In microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips following package instructions. Pour melted chocolate over top bars. Let cool. Cut into bars.
Store in airtight container.
