Crunchy Peanut Bars
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling
I have to comment on the two rated reviews. You did not review this recipe, you wrote your own recipes as reviews instead of submitting them separately! Nola has the right to have true opinions written about her specific recipe, and as soon as I can make these bars, I will review them, as the recipe sounds wonderful! You, on the other hand, have not helped anyone but your own egos.
I liked how very quickly these came together and they tasted good as well. I used carob chips, organic fruit juice sweetened corn flakes and left out the peanuts and they still tasted good. I do think that the calorie count here is off though because using my WW calorie counter without the peanuts mine were 195 per serving based on 8. The carob chips also have about half the calories that chocolate chips so beware of the extra calories.
I haven't made this but the first rate didn't mention chocolate in the topping...Did you leave it tout?
I have made this recipe for years. I altered the ingredients to 1/2 c brown sugar, 1/2 c corn syrup, 1/2 c peanut butter, 2 c corn flakes, 1 c rice crispies, no nuts, and 1 tsp vanilla. Spread in buttered 8" pan. Icing--combine 1/2 c brown sugar, 2 tablespoons cream or milk. 1-2 tablespoons butter, and 1 cup icing sugar. Blend well and spread over cooled squares.
