Ingredients:  
Dry Ingredients: In a very large bowl mix -
6 Cups of Corn Flakes
1 Cup of Peanuts

Ingredients to be cooked:
1/2 Cup of Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup of Brown Sugar
1 Cup of Light Karo (Corn) Syrup
1 Cup of Creamy Peanut Butter

Directions:
Directions:
In a 2 quart or larger pan over medium heat, mix the sugars and corn syrup, stirring constantly. Cook until mixture just begins to boil, then remove from heat. Mix in Peanut Butter. Pour mixture over dry ingredients. Mix until everything is evenly coated. Pour into a greased 9x13" cake pan. Press down with hands. Then I take a glass that is reasonably cylindrical and roll it firmly over the top to make it more smooth and uniform. Let it cool.

While the cake pan is cooling, melt a 12 ounce bag of chocolate chips over low heat. Once it is melted, spread it over the ingredients in the cake pan.

Wait for it to cool. You can either cut it in the pan or chill the whole thing and pop it out of the pan.

Cut it up into little squares.

Eat it all up!

Hi Miss Marla,
This is the most simple recipe of all the Christmas things I make, but it gets the most compliments.
