12 Days of Christmas - Day 1

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me.... a recipe

Bavarian Inn Peanut Bars

Makes 48 bars

From the kitchen of Chuck Trupiano

1 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon shortening
6 cups cornflakes
1 cup coarsely chopped salted peanuts
1 7 ounce bar milk chocolate, melted
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate pieces

In a 3 quart saucepan, combine corn syrup & sugars.

Bring to a boilover medium heat, stirring frequently.

Remove from heat & stir in peanut butter until smooth.

Stir in cornflakes and peanuts until coated. Turn into a

greased 13x9x2 pan and press firmly and evenly into

bottom. (for easier cutting, line pan with greased foil).

Spread with melted milk chocolate. Cool thoroughly.

Cut into bars and serve. If you like, melt together the

semisweet chocolate & shortening to drizzle over bars.
