Beat together the softened margarine, sugar, vanilla and egg. In a separate bowl stir together the flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the margarine/sugar mix and beat until smooth. With a spoon, stir in the cup of finely crushed Special K.

Take a few handfuls more Special K and crush lightly and place in a shallow bowl.

Special K Bars

Ingredients

1 cup light corn syrup

1 cup white sugar  (I used less)

1 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)

6 cups special k cereal (experimemt – use any variety)

12 ounce bag of chocolate chips or chocolate bars melted

 

Directions

In a bowl stir syrup and sugar and melt in microwave for a couple minutes just until the sugar is dissolved.

Then stir in the peanut butter and combine well.

 

In a larger bowl add your cereal following with your peanut butter mixture.   Mix well.

Spray or butter a baking pan (the bigger the pan the bigger thinner the bars) – and press the cereal mixture into it.  Afterwards, melt your chocolate in the microwave (in batches is easier and quicker).  Spread over your cereal like icing.

 

I then cover and place my pan in the refrigerator to let firm
