1 1/3 cups
white corn syrup
high protein crisp rice and wheat cereal
I have fond memories of these cookies from the bakery in the Indiana University Student Union back in the late 70's and couldn't believe that possibly it was the same cookie! It is! I used 5 cups of cereal instead of 4 to get it to the consistency I remember and they are terrific! I also used 2 tsp. of vanilla and made them on the stove instead of microwave. Once the sugar and syrup boiled for about one minute, I added vanilla and pb and it turned out perfectly.
Literally could not bite into these.
I am a gastric bypass patient so I needed to make these sugar free. I used Splenda in place of the sugar, sf syrup for the corn syrup, natural peanut butter, and Special K Protein Plus for the cereal. Very easy and turned out delicious.
These are fantastic!! Great as bars too! I usually spread the mix into a cake pan and pour melted semi-sweet chocolate chips over it. Then drop melted butterscotch chips and swirl into the chocolate and let harden. Cut into squares and serve, FABULOUS!!!
These are my favorite treat! I have used an array of cereals for this recipe but have found that Golden Grahams are my ultimate favorite in this recipe!
These were so easy to make and delicious! Having made rice krispies the same way, the key is to not over cook your syrup and sugar! Over cooking leads to rock hard cookies! I added another cup of cereal to get a better consistency and some small semi sweet chocolate chips (about a cup). For cook timing, I used my 700W microwave and only cooked the mixture for 2 minutes. Keep in mind that if you can do this quickly the mixture won't be too hard to stir together and much easier to spoon out onto your wax paper.
Very Good. I remember these from when I went to Indiana University in Bloomington and would get them at the Student Union between classes. They taste better if you add 1/2 cup more cereal. Make sure you use good quality peanut butter.
My grandmother used to make this, our family was surprised when I made it... we love them
