Chocolate-Peanut Butter Crispies

I love this recipe because there's very little cooking and kids can help make them. There are some major decisions to make before starting though-regular rice cereal or chocolate rice cereal, plus the really big decision - creamy or crunchy peanut butter. Marriages have nearly broken up over this one so choose wisely and consult the whole family before proceeding. You can substitute other cereals too, if you have a cupboard full of miscellaneous. ends of cereal boxes like I tend to have.

      Directions

      Place the cereal in a bowl. In a saucepan combine the brown sugar and corn syrup and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute then turn off the heat. Stir in the peanut butter then pour it over the cereal and stir immediately to combine and coat. Press into greased mini muffin tins (you'll probably need 3 tins) and let cool to set about 15 minutes. Pop out and store at room temperature.

        This is a great treat that will please the whole family. Think that I will try it with other cereals also. I made it with creamy peanut butter and they are just delicious...hope some make it to Thanksgiving, but probably not!
