Archive for the ‘Cookies/Biscuits/Bars’ Category

I made these over the weekend to take to my mum’s, I am not a big peanut butter fan but my brothers love the stuff, so I thought it would be a good place to test the recipe. I made these as cereal bars as opposed to cookies, this way there was far less sticky mess and it made it easier for me. I could not get chocolate stars or kisses were I live so I just bought a bar of regular milk chocolate and pressed the squares into the mix once I had poured it in. I greased the pan lightly before adding the cereal mix and then allowed it to set, it slipped right out whole once set and I just cut it into pieces. It went down a treat, with thumbs up all round and I have to say, I even thought it was good and I am not a big peanut butter fan.
