Sticky Finger Squares


I made these squares for my soccer team when we were playing in a day-long tournament a few weeks ago. They were a great portable snack that provided a boost of energy when we needed it! The squares are sweet, crunchy, chewy, and sticky (as the name implies) and make a great addition to lunchboxes, potlucks, bake sales, or for when you need a quick, sweet snack.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup corn syrup
2/3 cup smooth peanut butter
3 cups Shreddies (or other wheat cereal squares)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
3/4 cup raisins

Directions:

Lightly grease an 8x8" or 9x9" square baking pan with butter or nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

In a microwave-safe bowl or medium saucepan, combine the corn syrup and peanut butter. Microwave for 1-2 minutes or heat on the stovetop over medium heat until smooth. Stir to combine.

In a large bowl, combine the Shreddies, coconut, and raisins. Pour in the corn syrup/peanut butter mixture and gently stir until everything has been evenly coated.

Spread into the prepared pan and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or until firm. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container on the countertop or in the fridge.
