These chewy peanut butter munchies are a favourite in our house, and they're pretty simple and cheap to make, too!

Step 1: Ingredients

What you will need:

Rice Krispies or similar
1 jar of smooth peanut butter, smallish size, probably 1lb but don't have any right now so can't check!
1 1lb (454g) can of golden syrup
Chocolate for coating, 8oz (225g) or so.

1 large saucepan
Spoon for mixing, easier with a metal one
Large tray, this one is about 12" by 18" (31 by 36cm)
Spatula, rolling pin or anything to smooth out a stiff mixture.
Greaseproof paper (baking parchment)
Some strong arms, either yours or borrow a pair from somewhere.

Try using 1 cup butterscotch chips and 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate for the topping... it'll blow your mind! My grandma used to make these when I was little. They are super addicting.
Looks great. I have a question, i'm in mexico, so probably i will not find the golden syrup, what else could i use?. Can i use honey or caramel? Thanks for the recipe.
You could try it with honey, corn syrup would probably be closer in texture but with a different flavour. Don't know about Mexico but you can get golden syrup on Ebay.com, just search for "Lyles golden syrup", seems to be about $5 plus postage. I'm also trying recipes to make golden syrup at home, once I get it to work I'll make an instructable :p
How would this work with crushed Rice Chex?&nbsp; They're gluten-free, and cheaper than the organic puffed rice.<br /> <br /> I might have to give them a try myself and answer my own question.&nbsp; My four-year-old son is celiac, so I'm always looking for GF dessert ideas.<br />
Crushed Chex... hmm no idea, try it! Would give it an interesting texture I would think if they were crushed fairly finely.
My mom used to use crushed Corn Chex as a coating for oven-fried chicken. I'm not familiar with Golden Syrup. Is it readily available, or a specialty item?
<br /> Well it's readily available here in the UK, in the US it seems to be more of a specialty thing, maybe used in Cajun cooking.<br /> <br /> <a href="http://au.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20071030214713AAYnqfg" rel="nofollow">Found this</a> which might help though.<br />
Thank you! The answerer mentions Albertson's, which is now Food Pyramid in our area, and I know they have a British section in the Ethnic foods area. I'll look there.
this looks great but what is golden syrup?
Golden syrup is a thick sticky syrup made from sugar, like treacle but not such a strong flavour. According to Wikipedia it's not very well known in America... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_syrup
thats probally why i dont really know it thats where i live
Loved the reuse of the golden syrup can for measuring the rest of the ingredients. And the visitor from the garden! Will definitely be trying these.<br />
looks good<br />
