Crispy, Chewy Peanut Butter Bars

When I saw these on I knew they would be a hit with my husband.  He loves anything with peanut butter, especially chunky peanut butter.  They are super simple to make and require very few ingredients.  Just be careful not to overcook the peanut butter mixture or they will turn out really, really chewy.  Double the recipe if you want to fill a 9x13.

slightly adapted from No-Bake Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Corn Flake Bars on

1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
3 cups corn flakes, crushed (measure, then crush)
1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet, milk, or mixed)
1/2 Tbsp. butter

Line an 8x8 baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.  In a saucepan, heat peanut butter, sugar, and corn syrup over low heat until sugar dissolves.  Stir in cereal.  Pour mixture into prepared pan and pat smooth.

Melt chocolate chips with butter over low heat or in the microwave; spread over peanut butter mixture.  Cool until firm.  Remove from pan and cut into squares (makes 16).
