Katie's Peanut Butter Cup Bars

This is a gluten and casein free dessert for those who can't have wheat or milk and miss Peanut Butter Cups. This is an adaption of No-Bake Bars from Betty Crocker.



3 cups Corn or Honey Nut Chex

rounded 1/4 cup peanuts

1/4 cup honey or light corn syrup

1/8 cup sugar

1/4 cup peanut butter

3/4 cup (dairy-free) chocolate chips




Grease a square glass baking dish. In a large bowl mix Chex, peanuts and 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips. Set aside. In a saucepan heat honey and sugar to a rolling boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter until smooth. Pour over cereal mixture in bowl and stir gently until evenly coated. Press mixture into the baking dish and let cool for 15 minutes. In a small microwaveable bowl melt the remaining chocolate chips. Drizzle over bars. Put in refrigerator until firm. Cut into bars. Enjoy.

  2. No, not at all. It is crunchy. My oldest son and daughter haven't had Peanut Butter Cups for about 8 years so was dying for the taste. She came up with this recipe and we tasted it and it did indeed taste like them, but no, not at all the texture. Still pretty yummy. She makes things for the two of them and all the rest of the boys always prefer her stuff!
