O' Henry Bars

1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Karo Syrup
1 Cup Peanut Butter

4 1/2 Cups Rice Crispies Cereal
1 Cup Shredded Coconut
1 Cup dried, roasted, salted peanuts, chopped

Mix sugar and Karo syrup together in a small microwavable safe bowl. Microwave on high for 3 1/2 minutes until sugar is dissolved.
Mix in peanut butter and stir until smooth. (The sugar mixture should melt the peanut butter.)
In a big bowl, mix together the rice crispies, coconut, and chopped peanuts. Pour peanut butter mixture over top and mix together. Put in a buttered 9X13 pan and pat down until even.

1 pkg. milk chocolate chips
2 TBSP shortening

Microwave for 2 minutes (chocolate chips will look like they are not melted yet, but they will be soft when you stir them.) Stir until smooth and pour over bars evenly. Allow the chocolate to set up before serving. Enjoy!
(Thanks to my mother-in-law Claudia for this yummy recipe!)

I have a confession to make.....I've never tried these. I know, it's crazy b/c the Eddies make this for many family functions. I guess next time I'm going to have to try it. Can't wait for this weekend!!!!
