Oh Henry Bars

This quick and easy dessert is one of my very favorites.  It's one my mom made quite often and they disappeared rather quickly.  A combination of peanut butter, chocolate, and Special K cereal for a bit of crunch.  How can it be wrong???  It's peanut butter and Special K cereal!!

Here's what you need:
         1 cup sugar
         1 cup Karo syrup
         1 1/2 cup Peanut Butter
         6 cups Special K cereal

         6 oz milk chocolate chips
         6 oz peanut butter chips

Place the chocolate and peanut butter chips in a double boiler to melt while you are preparing the rest.

Put sugar and Karo syrup in large pan, bring to boil and boil for 1 minute.  Remove from heat, add peanut butter, then cereal and mix well.  Pour and press evenly into a 9 x 13 cake pan.

Pour the melted chips over the cereal base and then you just have to wait for it to cool.  That's the hardest part.  Ours usually get cut before the chocolate is set good.  They are soooooooo good.

Such fond memories of my mom when I make and eat these yummy treats.  I make them every year at Christmas and they are my go to dessert for church dinners.  A favorite of all the children (except the crazy one that doesn't like peanut butter).
