Follow me as I attempt to balance classes, work, and training for my first 5k.

Otter Bars

This recipe was given by an older lady 26 years ago. She was one of my mom's favorite clients from her old work. This cute little lady came in one day with this delicious treat to show her appreciation for what they all did for her. I really wish I knew her name because I would have name this recipe after her. =) Anywho, this is the famous dessert used only for fourth of July...just because so everyone can crave this thing all year round. ;) I hope you enjoy this delicious treat!

2/3 cup Karo
1 cup sugar
1 1/3 peanut butter
6 cups of Special K Original cereal
12 ounce bag of chocolate chips

The Cast of Characters: Sugar, Special K Orginal, Karo corn syrup, peanut butter, and milk chocolate chips!

In a large cooking pan, pour in 2/3 cup of Karo, 1 cup of sugar and 1 1/3 cup of peanut butter.
Stir with a silver spoon until it's all blended together evenly.

By the way, can this kitten get any more cuter? :) 

Next, 6 cups of Special K cereal. FLIP the cereal around with a spatula. DON'T crush the cereal. You want it to be nice and crunchy when you eat it later. 

In a 9 by 13 inch glass pan, pour the mix into it and even it out nicely. NOTE: you do not have to spray the bottom of this pan. :)

Now, in a safe microwavable bowl, pour the whole 12 ounce chocolate chip packet inside. Microwave this for 15 seconds, stir and repeat 15 seconds until it is nice and smooth. 

If it's smooth, pour on top of the crust and even it out. Try to avoid touching the glass pan.

Refrigerate for up to 8 to 24 hours.
Next, take a sharp knife and cut it. It's gonna be rock solid hard, get your husband, boyfriend or anyone with big buffy arms to cut this thing apart! :) 

Happy 4th of July!
