Mealtime Makeovers...Grandma’s famous bars PDF Print E-mail

When it comes to snacks, we all have our favorites. We also always have those good ol’ standbys that we turn to time and time again.
I have several favorites at my Grandma’s house, but they usually are meals, aside from her angel food cake. Yum! My little sister Alyssa has a favorite at our Grandma Irma’s too. It is the Famous Candy Bar. I am not kidding you when I say she could eat half a pan of these treats in one sitting.
They are delicious and fairly easy to make. Similar to a scotch-a-roo, but with a little different texture. So courtesy of Grandma Irma, try this on for size.

Famous Candy Bar


1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup white corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups corn flakes
1 cup salted peanuts
1 package semi sweet chocolate chips
1 package milk chocolate chips
In a saucepan, mix sugars and syrup; boil one minute. Add peanut butter and mix well.
Meanwhile, mix corn flakes and peanuts in a large bowl. Pour saucepan mixture over the top and stir to coat. Spread evenly in a greased 9x13 inch pan.
Melt chocolate chips together and spread over the top of corn flake mixture.
Let stand until cool. Cut and serve.
