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 *
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)
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.
