To complete the meal. Lorri whips up a pan of Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars. "These chewy cereal treats are the perfect no-fuss contribution to a potluck or bake sale," she adds. "I've discovered a few minutes in the refrigerator helps the bar's frosting set faster. Of course, the trick is getting them in there before they disappear!"

"The melted chocolate pushes these bars over the top! This is a easy, quick and yummy recipe. I have made these many time, often omitting the melted chocolate and pressing 1 cup of mini chocolate chips into the top. This eliminates lots of sticky, chocolatey hands! Plus, not quite as sweet. Wonderful combination of flavors!"

"I never made this recipe but I happened to come across it and found out that it is pretty much the same recipe my Mom makes all the time- especially when I was a kid. We loved them and now that I have made them some they are really easy! You can also subsitute half of the corn syrup for honey. In the recipe we use, sometimes you need 8 cups of cereal and for the topping, we use 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup butterscotch chips. SO good!"

"Finally! an outstanding recipe for Peanut Butter Bars. I didn't quite have a full cup of light corn syrup so I improvised and used honey. Couldn't tell the difference. I also used aluminum foil to line my 9 X 13 pan before adding the Rice Krispie Mixture."
