The curse of an office job- finger food snacks that leave you asking for the recipe! This is a Special K Treats Recipe floating around my husband’s office. Someone brought some in, and my husband insisted I keep the recipe for future use. So, I whipped them up last weekend for Superbowl Sunday. It is in no way healthy, despite using Special K cereal- but most good snacks aren’t!
What you’ll need:
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Light Corn Syrup
1 Cup Peanut Butter
5 Cups Special K Cereal (original)
Bring 1 cup sugar and 1 cup Light Corn Syrup to a rapid boil (stir constantly- don’t burn the sugar!)
Mix in 1 cup Peanut Butter (have this ready to mix in, if you stop stirring you may burn the sugar!)
Remove from heat
Mix in 4.5 – 5 cups Special K cereal
Drop onto wax paper into small pieces
(if you couldn’t tell by my instructions… I started to burn my sugar. Oops. Still tastes good)
Had I known ahead of time how hard and chewy these were, I’d have done the pieces a heck of a lot smaller. No need to make them the size of cookies.
