Peanut Butter Cereal Bars

These are so easy and yummy (unhealthy), and great for summer when you don't want to turn on the oven as much to make treats.

1 C corn syrup
1 C white sugar (I sometimes use half brown, half white)
1 C peanut butter
8 C breakfast cereal (I use 2 cups each of Chex, Cheerios, Corn Flakes, and Rice Crispies. Actually I don't really measure at all. It's also great w/just Rice Crispies or just Corn Flakes, or any combination)
Chocolate chips (optional)

Bring 1 cup corn syrup and 1 cup sugar to boil in a big pot. Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup peanut butter until melted. Stir in cereal until well coated, adding chocolate chips if desired at the end. Spread in greased 9X13 pan, or, if you're doing just corn flakes, spread out on greased jelly roll pan.
