    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This complete recipe can be doubled. It is best to slice the bars while the chocolate topping is only semi hardened, this will prevent the chocolate from cracking.

      It's been a while since I made rice crispy bars. I don't remember using sugar and corn syrup. Anyway, I used dark corn syrup and cheerios, because that is what I had, and I needed to use up the cheerios. They turned out nice and gooey. I liked that, but they were sweeter than I like and didn't taste very much like peanut butter. Oh well, maybe I can modify this next time. Thank you for sharing.<br/><br/>Update: They were so gooey because I didn't wait long enough to try them. The next day they were better, but I discovered that I had made them too thick. That made them hard to eat. Still tasted good, though. Still need more peanut butter. I can't seem to stop eating them. All that sugar is going to kill me yet. (And my DH, who is diabetic, but won't leave these alone.)

      Made these for my family, the kid's and my dad loved them but I found them too sweet. I think next time I might leave out the corn syrup and maybe some of the sugar.
