Reese’s Peanut Butter Granola Bars
Reese’s Peanut Butter Granola Bars ⅓ cup packed light brown sugar ¼ cup creamy peanut butter ¼ cup honey 4 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 cups quick oats ⅔ cup crispy rice cereal ¾ cup Reese's peanut butter chips ½ cup Reese's Pieces Combine brown sugar, peanut butter, honey and butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. Bring sugar mixture just to a boil and then continue cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes stirring constantly, or until sugar dissolves. Stir in oats and crispy rice cereal until evenly coated. Let mixture cool for 5 minutes. Line 8x8 inch baking dish with parchment paper or foil, making sure the paper hangs over on either side so you can pull out the granola bars and cut them up with ease. Once mixture has cooled slightly, fold in peanut butter chips and press into the prepared dish. Sprinkle top with Reese's Pieces and additional peanut butter chips if desired. Use the bottom of a bowl or cup to press firmly into the bars. You don't want the candy to fall out when cutting! Let bars cool for several hours. (Dish can be place into refrigerator to speed up process.) Cut into bars and serve!
