|No-Bake Peanut Butter & Chocolate Bars|
Well, if you make this, then you'd better be "prayed-up" too! It's easy (no bake) so that's a double threat. We don't make difficult recipes that often, do we? I knew I'd better send this batch to work with my husband the very next day...or else! I promised the recipe would be on my blog, so y'all, enjoy!
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light-color corn syrup
2 cups peanut butter
3 cups rise cereal
3 cups cornflakes
3/4 cup butter
4 cups powdered sugar
two 4-serving size pkgs vanilla instant pudding mix
1/4 cup milk
1 12-oz pkg semisweet chocolate pieces
1/2 cup butter
(are you dizzy yet???)
Line a 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pan with foil, extending foil over edges of pan. Set pan aside.
In a large saucepan combine granulated sugar and corn syrup. Heat and stir just until mixture boils around the edges. Heat and stir for 1 minute more.
Remove saucepan from heat. Stir in peanut butter until melted. Stir in rice cereal and cornflakes until coated. Press mixture into the bottom of prepared pan. (For this, I used my impeccably clean hands)
For pudding layer: in a medium saucepan melt the 3/4 cup butter. Stir in powdered sugar, dry vanilla pudding mixes and milk. Spread this mixture evenly over the cereal layer; set aside.
For Frosting: In a small saucepan combine the chocolate pieces and 1/2 cup butter. Heat and stir over low heat until melted and smooth. Spread on frosting over pudding layer. Cover and chill until set.
To Serve: Lift the foil out of pan, (I put mine on my glass cutting board) and cut into bars. You'll need a good knife, or butcher knife/cleaver for this job.
ok, one more parting shot of these goodies...
So there you have it. I would love to hear if you tried this and what the reaction was! Please let me know because...I read every comment you leave!
