Place Special K cereal into a large greased bowl.
In a saucepan, over low-medium heat combine the sugar and syrup until sugar dissolves, do not allow mixture to boil. Remove from heat and add the peanut butter, stir until well blended
Pour liquid mixture over cereal. Stir until evenly coated.
Pour into a greased 9" x 13" pan and lightly press into bottom of pan (*See note for helpful hint).

Melt chips together on the stove over low heat until melted, stirring often or you may microwave (at 30 second intervals, then stir. Only microwave just until melted).
When mixture is smooth, pour over the top of the bars and spread evenly.
Cool,cut and enjoy.
