K-Bars: AKA Best Bars Ever

At my family Christmas, a secondary Aunt always comes bearing piles and piles of her infamous K-bars. They are beyond delicious. They are one of my all time favorite things and I finally got the recipe this year after years of yearning for it.

I was shocked at how easy it is. I didn't even burn the syrups and sugars and chocolates on the stove top as I was convinced I would. 

I'm converted. Chocolate and melting is never meant to be done quickly in the microwave. Stovetop makes it simple.

And simple is always the goal. Especially when paired with delicious.

-1 cup sugar
-1 cup Karo Syrup
-1 cup peanut butter
-6 cups rice crispies
-12 oz bag semi sweet chocolate chips

Bring sugar and syrup to a boil on the stove, stirring consistently. Removed from heat, add peanut butter. Mix. Add to rice crispies. Press into 9 by 13 pan. Melt chocolate chips on stove top and pour over rice crispies mixture. Smooth and allow at LEAST a half hour to harden/cool. Refrigerate to speed process if necessary.
