Cereal Bars

Cereal Bars

3/4 cup corn syrup (or honey)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup peanut butter
5 cups cereal (flakes work well)
1/2 cup raisins or other small dried fruit (I preferred dried cranberries)

Put corn syrup and brown sugar in large saucepan, cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved and mixture is bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter. Add cereal and fruit and stir until well coated. (A silicone spatula works well)
Press mixture into a buttered or sprayed 13×9 pan for thin bars, a 8×8 pan for thick bars. Press with spatula so packed in.
Cut when cool into bars.
Fair warning: while utterly addicting, don’t eat if you have funky dental work! They are sticky goodness.
