"After reading a storybook to my daughter one night, she started calling chocolate covered granola bars, Chompo Bars. I came up with recipe so we could have a homemade version of Chompo Bars. A yummy combo of rice cereal, chocolate and peanut butter." — sugarbean

light corn syrup
chocolate flavored crispy rice cereal
1 1/4 cups
semisweet chocolate chips
Yummy!!! :) it is yummy and fun.
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.
These are seriously yummy! I used regular rice krispies, and they turned out awesome! Thank You Sugarbean for sharing such a yummy, easy, and quick recipe!
