Chex Peanut Butter Bars

*Gluten Free
These are just like scotcheroos but without the butterscotch chips. Chewy and delicious with a homemade frosting.

7 cups Rice or Corn Chex
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
Mom's Chocolate Frosting recipe below
Grease a large bowl and pour the chex in. Set aside. Grease a 9x13 dish. In a pot on medium heat melt sugar and corn syrup, stir till boils. Remove from heat and add peanut butter, stir till smooth and pour over chex. Gently fold in till chex are evenly coated. Pour into 9x13. Set aside and make frosting.
Mom's Chocolate Frosting:
1 cube butter
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1/3 cup canned milk
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Melt butter. Add cocoa and milk stirring constantly with a whisk just till it starts to thicken. Remove from heat and add powdered sugar and vanilla. Whisk till smooth and immediately pour over chex bars. Let cool completely. Cut into bars. **This frosting is the best! Pour it on sheet cake recipes or bundt cakes or brownies.**
