Mom-certified: "You always make such a mess when you cook"
 
Picture
I've always said that if I ever stumbled into actually opening a vegan bakery (just what my 3 years of law school trained me for! Oh, wait...), Dan would have to be in charge of food photography. If you want it to turn out pretty? Have Dan do it. If you want to eat it in the foreseeable ever? I'll do it, but it might be a little homely. For example? This thing. Super fast, not so pretty.

In my incredibly brief search for Special K cereal at the grocery store last night, I didn't spot any vegan kinds, so I grabbed the closest thing I could find. Thus, these are Special K-ish bars. They should turn out just fine with any cereal that approximates Special K. Plus the cereal is hidden under a layer of chocolate, so I seriously doubt that anyone will (a) notice or (b) care that the Special K is missing from the Special K bars. We'll see if anyone notices that there's dried fruit hiding in mine. * shifty eyes *

Ingredients:
5 cups Special K-ish cereal
2/3 cup corn syrup
2/3 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tbsp Earth Balance butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 package chocolate chips (or 1/2 package chocolate chips and 1/2 package butterscotch chips if you want to be fancy)
Instructions:
Bring syrup, sugar, and butter to a boil. Turn heat to low and add peanut butter and cereal (or transfer to a mixing bowl). Spread mixture in a 9 x 13 pan. Melt the chocolate chips and spread over the cereal mixture.
Running a little low on energy and/or ambition? Special K-ish bars to the rescuezzz.

The chocolate chips and butterscotch chips are not vegan. Unless you are using vegan chips??
