This is a recipe that my Mom use to make every year, for Christmas, when I was growing up. I'm really not sure if she still makes it now, because with everything she makes and I bring over, it's hard to sample one of everything, LOL. I knew the kiddos would love these and my mother in law as well, so I decided to make a batch this year.
I absolutely LOVE the way the Rice Krispies soften and melt in with the peanut butter/corn syrup mixture. These are sticky, salty and sweet. One of my favourite combinations, with chocolate. Mom usually tops these with semi sweet chocolate, but could you believe that all the semi sweet chocolate chips at our local grocery store were sold out? Major Christmas baking going on in this town! So, I went with milk chocolate, drizzled with white chocolate. Mom use to form these into chocolate bar type treats, but I didn't really think the shape would be that appetizing, so I went with a bar. These are super simple, but taste totally awesome!
