Chocolate Peanut Butter Cornflake Bars {gluten, dairy, egg-free}

Pin It
Recently I  stumbled onto this recipe for Gooey Cornflake Bars at The Better Mom and was impatiently waiting for a chance to try it.  When I finally did have an occasion to make it, a bag of Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips caught my eye and I just haaad to add them in.  I figured, you probably can't go wrong mixing peanut butter and chocolate together, right?  So I never did actually make the recipe I meant to, and I still hope to, but in the process this chocolate version emerged.  So next time you need to put together a simple sweet treat, give this one a try (or if you'd rather, try the original non-chocolate version.)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cornflake Bars {gluten, dairy, egg-free}

6 cup gluten-free cornflakes
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips

In the microwave, melt peanut butter, honey and chocolate chips for 1 minute.  Remove and stir; then continue heating in 30-second increments until completely melted and combined.  (If you prefer, you can do this in a saucepan on the stovetop over medium-low heat, stirring constantly.)  Measure cornflakes into a large bowl and pour in peanut butter-chocolate mixture.  Stir to coat.  Grease a 7 x 11 inch pan.  Transfer coated cornflakes to pan.  Spread evenly into pan, pressing down firmly with the back of a pancake turner, packing mixture tightly.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Cut into squares and serve.
