What better way is there to celebrate being 39 Weeks along and my last day at work than making Peanut themed treats?! If I can do it, you can too.
You will need:
1 glass of wine or Diet Dr Pepper (remember, your beverage is really your choice)
6c Corn Flakes
1 c Lyle’s Golden Syrup (UK) or Karo Syrup (US)
1 c granulated sugar
1 c peanut butter (creamy, crunchy or a combination)
11 oz chocolate chips or broken chocolate bar
11 oz butterscotch chips (US) or Carnation caramel (UK)
greased or lined 9″x11″ or 9″x13″ cake pan/roasting pan
What you have to do:
Grease or line a cake pan.
Measure the Corn Flakes into a large bowl (you need the extra room in the bowl.)
Grab some Lyle’s or Karo Syrup.
Get a double boiler ready for your chocolate and butterscotch/caramel.
Heat the syrup and sugar on medium heat until smooth, stirring almost constantly (you know what sugar looks like, did you need a photo?!). DO NOT OVERHEAT.
Remove the syrup/sugar mixture from heat and immediately stir in the Peanut Butter.
Stir the above mixture into the cereal until well coated and then press into your prepared cake pan.
Melt together your chips and butterscotch/caramel; if you don’t have a double boiler just heat in a microwave safe container in the microwave for thirty second bursts. Pour this mixture on top of the pressed cereal.
Cool in the fridge for as long as you can stand it (2-4 hours is a nice chilling time); cut; serve.
