  1. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Heat the corn syrup and marshmallows in a large saucepan over medium-low heat until marshmallows are melted, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in the crispy rice cereal. Press the cereal mixture into the prepared baking pan. Place a sheet of aluminum foil over the cereal mixture, and use a soup can to press the cereal together firmly to create a dense layer. Remove the foil, and spread the peanut butter on top, then refrigerate the pan.
  3. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate chips with the vegetable oil in the top of a double boiler over just-barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Once the chocolate mixture is smooth, allow it to cool slightly before spreading over the peanut butter layer. Return pan to the refrigerator, and chill until the chocolate layer has hardened, about 30 minutes. Cut into 36 bars.

Good inspiration but I heavily altered my version to cut down on the fat and sugar. I really like how it turned out; the original would have been too intense for me. I used 1/4 cup of honey instead of corn syrup and 2 cups of marshmallows (not 3). Plain Rice Krispy cereal (not chocolate). Used 1/2 cup of peanut butter and 3/4 cup of choco chips. Melted the PB&CC in a double boiler - did not use oil at all. *Use wax paper, not foil, to press the cereal mixture down*

Loved these! I warmed the marshmellow mixture and the chocolate in the microwave instead of the stove. I used wax paper instead of aluminum foil to put over the the rice krispie bar part before pressing mixture to dense layer. Super Yummy and very fun to make. Thanks for the great recipe!

These were excellent! I did use candy quick melting chocolate instead of using the chocolate chips. Sent the overseas to my deployed boyfriend, and they shipped well. Big hit, even had people request the recipe.

I am a no-sugar cook, so this was a little challenging for me! But, they were still yummy! Chompo Bars, from Francis Books?

The Chompo Bars get 5 stars for taste, but an overall 4 star rating because of the presentation. It is very hard to get a "clean cut" once the chocolate has set. I am going to try these again and cut them before the chocolate has hardened. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Didn't like the combination. too much topping for me and my wife and flavor for whatever reason was just kind of plain and didn't seem to go together very well.
