Peanut Butter Lover Squares

April 30, 2010

My husband loves peanut butter and I have to say it has grown on me over the years too.  If you want a go to recipe for no-cook easy bar cookies then this is the recipe for you.  I found this one several years back in a magazine probably Southern Living but not sure of the source, anyway it’s one of the easiest sweet recipes I have.  Your peanut butter loving family and friends will be praising your name for sure.

Peanut Butter Lover Squares

1 cup sugar

1 cup light corn syrup

1 cup peanut butter

1 tsp. vanilla

6 cups of Chex type rice cereal

1 cup peanuts

Combine first 3 ingredients in a glass bowl; microwave on high for 3 to 4 min. or until melted, stirring once.  Combine nuts and cereal in large bowl.  When peanut butter mixture is done pour over the top of the cereal mixture and stir until well coated.   Spread in a 13X9 in. light greased pan cover and chill 1 hour until set.  Cut into small squares.

Makes: 24 squares if cut small.

Tip:  To spread any sticky ingredients, spray the back of your spatula with cooking  spray first.

  1. oh my, that looks so good. My Eleni loves peanut butter on graham crackers, she would love this!

  2. I love anything peanut and this looks scrumptious! My grandkids are coming tomorrow and we are making this together. They love to stir….thanks!

  3. This reminds me a lot of Muddy Buddies minus the chocolate. Very tasty looking snack!
