Old-School Peanut Butter Squares
If you couldn't already tell, we're HUGE peanut butter fans. These peanut butter squares are definitely a favorite. They taste just like the ones we had in elementary school... hence the name old-school. We weren't suppose to trade food in elementary school and I loved these so much I tried swapping something for them under the table and got caught. I spent the rest of the lunch period with my head down. To bad I didn't get to eat the peanut butter square, it would've been worth it!
OLD-SCHOOL PEANUT BUTTER SQUARES
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
5 cups crisp rice cereal (puffed rice)
Combine corn syrup and sugar in medium saucepan. Stir until well blended and cook on medium heat until boiling, stirring occasionally. Let boil for about 30 seconds and remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and mix until well blended. Stir in cereal and mix until well blended. Pour into greased 9 x 13 pan. Lightly spray hands with cooking spray and then press mixture into pan. Cool and then cut into squares.
