Whenever I visit my friend Anna she always gives me something she has made. The last time she watched the kids for me was no exception. She babysat for me and then....gave me some delicious homemade granola bars. They were amazing. So of course I got the recipe and have been throwing self-control out the window ever since. Because again, they are De-lish. They are chewy and they are easy to make.

Here is the very simple recipe......

Bring to boil:

1 1/4 cup corn syrup

1 cup brown sugar

then add:

1 cup heaping creamy peanut butter

after peanut butter melts into mixture, add:

2 cups mini marshmallows

Remove from heat & add:

4 cups oatmeal

3 cups Rice Krispies

grease 9 X 13 pan and put 1/2 of granola mixture in pan. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips. Put the rest of the mixture on top and press until flat. (like Rice Krispie treats) Sprinkle with mini m & m's or mini chocolate chips on top.

Heather, why don't you bring me a pan over and we can sit, eat, and ponder life. Oh, and finish the whole pan together...we can call it a bonding experience. I'll supply the drink. Crystal

I just wrote it down so hopefully I can make it soon. Thanks for sharing. When I saw them I thought, "Oh, to have the recipe!" And you provided.
