Heavenly Bars

Wow! It's been a very long time since I've been on here.  I made these Heavenly Bars awhile ago after I got back from Wisconsin.  My mom got some as a deli near are cabin and told me I needed to figure out the recipe.  I knew it was similar to a scotcheroo but there was this frosting type layer in the middle.  I had a thought that it was vanilla pudding.  Well, the recipe from is below but beware that it makes quite a bit of them and it's hard to put them down, hence the name.

  • 1 pkg. (4-serving-size) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 cups packed Brown Sugar
  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 1 cup Karo corn syrup
  • 4 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter or oleo, melted
  • About 6 tbsp. milk
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
Measure dry pudding mix and divide it into two equal portions; set aside. For the first layer, in a large saucepan combine brown sugar, the 2 cups peanut butter, the corn syrup, and ONE portion of the pudding mix. Stir over low heat just until combined. (Mixture may stiffen.) Remove from heat and stir in Rice Krispies. Spray a 15x10x1-inch jelly roll pan lightly with nonstick spray and press the mixture evenly into the pan. Place in refrigerator until firm. For the second layer, stir together the powdered sugar and the remaining portion of the pudding mix. Add melted butter. Stir in the milk, about 1 tablespoon at a time, to make a fairly thick frosting consistency. Spread over the first layer and put back in fridge about 30 minutes or until firm. For the third layer, melt together chocolate chips and remaining peanut butter just until smooth. Drop by spoonfuls over the powdered sugar layer and spread out evenly. Chill until set. Cut into bars. (Best if kept refrigerated.)
Number of Servings: 24 to 36
