Super Easy and Yummy Easter Treats

Special K Cereal Bars

This has to be one of my favorite recipes ever!

1 cup of Sugar
1 cup of Karo Syrup
Bring to a good boil.  
Take of the stove top & add 1 cup of Peanut Butter
2 teas. vanilla
Add 5-6 cups Special K Cereal.  (I like to use a little more cereal)
Mix it all together so all the cereal is covered in the creamy goodness!
Place it all in a large cake pan.
Melt 1 package of Chocolate Chips and some Peanut Butter.  
(The amount of Peanut Butter depends on your preference.)
Then spread on top, cut, and ENJOY!

Usually I double the recipe and make a HUGE cake bar pan. 
(The more the merrier!)  Plus it is a great thing to give away.

This year I decided to be a little festive.  After the cereal mixture cooled.
I scooped a heaping spoonful on a waxed sheet of paper, pushed in the middle.
Drizzled the chocolate mix on top and placed the Jelly Beans on to make it look like a nest.
There are a couple variations to the last step pictured.
(When I do this again, I'll use chocolate beans instead of fruity jelly bean.)
I should've known better, Chocolate all the way Baby!

Easter is the best for the goodies, so why not make your own??

Hope you have a fantastic weekend. 
Man, have I told you how I love this time of year?!?
We're out to do some yard work, pictures to follow soon!

What are your plans for the weekend?
