Niall’s Chocolate-barry Squares

  • 1 tablespoon butter (not margarine)
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 2 cups Rice Crispies
  • 1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup roasted peanuts, chopped (salted is fine)
  • 1/2 cup “processed” smooth peanut butter, such as Kraft  (organic just doesn’t work here — it’s the wrong texture)
  • 1/2 cup good chocolate chips

Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter (see above)
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  1. In a large saucepan, put butter, corn syrup, brown sugar, peanut butter, and chocolate chips.  On low-medium heat, stir until mixture is smooth and just comes to a slow boil.
  2. Remove from heat, and quickly stir in nuts and Rice Crispies.
  3. Dump mixture evenly into a greased 9″x13″ pan, and press with a buttered spatula or hands (careful, it’s hot!) until evenly distributed.

Topping:

  1. In a small saucepan over low-medium heat, melt peanut butter and chocolate chips until smooth.
  2. Spread evenly over base layer.  Refrigerate until firm, and cut into squares.*

*to easily remove squares, line the bottom and two sides of the pan with parchment paper.
