When my neighbor, Courtney, shows up at my door with Peanut Butter Special K Treats a few times a year, my heart leaps. I seriously love these things. Although they aren’t the prettiest things in the world, they make up for it in deliciousness. And addictiveness. And calories. Make them soon;)
Not to mention these are perfect for your Superbowl party coming up! With just a few ingredients and little time, you can have homemade treats for any gathering!
No Bake Peanut Butter Special K Treats
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 t. salt
1 t. vanilla
1 cup Karo syrup (light)
2 cups creamy peanut butter
5 cups Special K cereal
In a saucepan, whisk together sugar, brown sugar, salt, vanilla, and Karo syrup, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
In a separate, large bowl, add peanut butter and cereal, then add the hot sugar mixture. Mix all together gently until cereal is completely coated.
Drop by spoonfuls onto easy-release foil or wax paper sprayed with Pam. Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
Makes about 4 dozen, depending on size of treats.
