Comment on this recipe
My grandmother got this recipe from a friend and I remember her making it around Christmas. It was then passed down to my mother who made it around the holidays. I now make it for my daughter all year round - it is her favorite treat.
1 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup smooth peanut butter
6 cups Special K cereal
1 large bar (7 ounces) Hershey's milk chocolate
In a large saucepan dissolve the sugar and the corn syrup; add the peanut butter and blend until smooth. Remove from heat and add the cereal. Pat in pan. Separate the Hershey bar into individual pieces and place evenly over the top of the cereal mixture. Place in oven until the chocolate bar melts (approximately 5 minutes). Take out of the oven and spread chocolate evenly over the cereal mixture. Let cool several hours before serving to set the chocolate. Do not refrigerate.
