Faux Henry Bars


1 cup brown sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter (or soy-based substitute)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 cups rice krispies
1 cup peanuts (optional)
1 cup chocolate chips


In a pot over low to medium heat and stirring constantly, combine brown sugar, corn syrup, peanut butter, vanilla and salt until smooth.

In a large bowl, pour in rice krispies (and nuts if you're using them). Add sugar mixture and mix well.

Put into a greased 9x13 pan. Use your hands to press it down.

Melt chocolate chips and spread over the rice krispies.

Allow chocolate to harden before cutting and serving.

NOTE: I usually make this on the same day I'm baking, so I'll put the cold chocolate chips on the rice krispies and put it in the oven when I turn it off at the end of the day. By the time I've cleaned up part of the kitchen, the chips are melted and I can spread them around.

NOTE: This recipe goes back a long time - we used it in Pioneer Girls for one of our badges when I was a girl.
