Peanut Butter Granola Bars

If you have not made these granola bars yet, you really need to! Today when I made them I used peanut butter, broken pretzels, chocolate chips, and teeny tiny marshmallows. I was told that I'd outdone myself. SO good!!!

Makes 8 bars

1/4 c butter
1/4 c peanut butter1/2 c brown sugar
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp corn syrup
2 1/3 c quick-cooking oats
1/3 c chocolate chips
1/3 c very small marshmallows 
1/3 c broken pretzels
Spray a 8x8 baking pan with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a saucepan, combine butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, honey, and corn syrup. Stir constantly over medium heat until butter is melted, sugar is dissolved, and mixture is smooth. Stir in oats, chocolate chips, marshmallows, and pretzel pieces until well coated. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Bake for 22 minutes.

Cool in pan 5 minutes. Slice into bars. Cool in pan an additional hour before removing.

**"Follow the directions on cutting and removing these from the pan. It will make them much easier to remove from the pan."**
