Crunchy Peanut Butter Bars

29 Jul

All weekend, I have been looking for good bar recipes and there are just so many it was nearly impossible to choose some to try but I finally decided on these little babies! They attracted me because they are so straight forward and quick and boy am I happy I tried them because they are amazing! 😀 They have a crunch from the the cornflakes but they are still chewy and sweet with a hint of saltiness from the peanuts. Heaven! These are a definite must try.

Crunchy Peanut Butter Bars

1 cup light brown sugar

1 cup corn syrup/ golden syrup

1 cup crunchy peanut butter

1 cup dry roasted peanuts

6 cups cornflakes

2 generous cups dark chocolate chips

  • Grease and line a 9×13 inch baking tray with baking parchment and allow it to hang over the edge.
  • Heat the light brown sugar and syrup in a large pot over a low-medium heat until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is just boiling.
  • Take off the heat and mix in the peanut butter and dry roasted peanuts until you have a smooth mixture. Add the the cornflakes to the pot and stir until coated.
  • Put the mixture into the prepared tray quickly while the mixture is still warm and slightly runny. Smooth and flatten with a spatula.
  • Let cool in the fridge for 30mins until hardened.
  • Melt the dark chocolate chips in the microwave in 30sec bursts mixing each time until smooth and all the chips are melted.
  • Pour the chocolate over the cornflake mixture and smooth with a spatula.
  • Return the tray to the fridge and leave for 15-20mins until the chocolate is set. Cut into bars and enjoy!
