No Bake Peanut Butter Drop Cookies

Awhile back I received a free booklet in the mail from Karo. I always send away for these free booklets because sometimes they have the best recipes and this was one of those times.

I've always liked rice krispies treats and these are sorta like them but different.

I, of course, changed up the recipe slightly. I added some peanuts to the recipe and I also used rice chex instead of corn chex cereal.No Bake Peanut Butter Drop Cookies

6 cups rice or corn chex cereal (I also bought the generic brand)
1 cup Karo Light Corn Syrup
1 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups creamy peanut butter. I used a little crunchy peanut butter to make the 1 1/4 cups.
2/3 cup milk chocolate chips

Pour cereal into a bowl and set aside.

Stir corn syrup and sugar together in a large sauce pan over med/high heat until dissolved and boiling. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until creamy. Add chocolate chips and stir until chips are melted.

Pour mixture over cereal and mix until all pieces are coated.

Drop by heaping spoonful onto waxed paper. I placed them in the fridge for 5 minutes to set up.

Store in an airtight container.
