If you made these no-bake peanut butter bars and brought them to the potluck…..
…..and I was there….and I ate one.
We would instantly become BFF”s.
I would sit right next to you with my peanut butter bar dessert plate and talk for hours.
I’d ask you for the recipe and point out my slice and bake cookies on the dessert table still covered with red Saran Wrap left over from Christmas and we would talk about how hot it has been here and how everything should be no-bake when it’s almost 100 degrees outside and how I have this very odd sunburn on one arm in the shape of a space ship where I forgot the sunscreen at the pool yesterday.
Good thing it’s going to be cooler this weekend.
Good thing I’m almost out of red saran wrap.
Good thing I have the no-bake recipe just for you…..
No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
recipe from bhg
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light-color corn syrup
2 cups creamy peanut butter
3 cups cornflakes
3 cups crisp rice cereal
3/4 cup butter
4 cups powdered sugar
2 4-serving-size vanilla instant pudding and pie- filling mix
1/4 cup milk
1 12 oz. package of semi-sweet chocolate pieces
1/2 cup butter
Step 1: Line a 15 x 10 x 1 pan with foil. Make sure the foil covers the bottom of the pan and reaches up over the edge of the pan.
This is so you can lift it out when it’s ready to cut.
Step 2: Combine sugar and corn syrup in a medium sauce pan on the stove.
Stir until boiling around the edges.
Heat and stir for one more minute. Remove from heat.
Stir in peanut butter until melted. Stir in cornflakes and crisp rice cereal until coated.
Press into the bottom of the pan.
Step 3: Next, make the pudding layer. In a medium sauce pan, melt the 3/4 cup butter. Add in powdered sugar, pudding mixes and milk.
Spread pudding mixture over cereal layer and set aside.
Step 4: For frosting, in a small saucepan combine semi-sweet chocolate pieces and 1/2 cup butter.
Stir over low-heat until melted.
Spread frosting over pudding layer.
Cover and chill for one hour or until set.
Step 5: To serve, lift foil out of pan, place on a cutting board and cut bars.
Makes 64 bars.
And now it’s your turn!
