"How can something so easy with only a few ingredients be so yummy, well make these and find out for yourself! You could top them with melted chocolate after the bars cool, store in the fridge for a very crispy texture. I made an 8x8 pan amount but I will double because they are just SO good!"

Step 1

Line 8-inch (2 L) square cake pan with parchment paper. Add cereal to large bowl. Set aside.

Step 2

In small saucepan, mix the sugar, corn syrup, 1/3 cup water and salt together; bring to a medium boil medium-high heat. Continue to boil WITHOUT stirring, until consistency of maple syrup, 5 to 6 minutes (mine took about 10 minutes to thicken - you can stir the ingredients just after adding to the saucepan but DO NOT stir while boiling!). Remove from heat; stir in peanut butter and melted butter until smooth. Pour over cereal; stir until well combined. Scrape into prepared pan, smoothing top. Let cool to room temperature.

Step 3

Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. Let stand for 30 minutes before slicing.

Step 4

Top with melted chocolate if desired after cooling.
