Fake Butterfingers

 I made this over the summer for a quick no bake treat.  It does require some time in front of the stove, but it's only for a few min.  The bars are worth it!

DIY Butterfingers via Chocolate Covered Katie
1/4 c honey (bars will hold together better if you use corn syrup)
1 T molasses
3.5 T sugar
1 c smooth pb
1.5 c flake cereal
pinch of salt
2/3 c chocolate chips

line 8x8 pan with parchment.  combine 1st 3 ingred in sm sauce pan.  let come to a boil and boil 1 min, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  Quickly stir in pb and salt until encorporated, then quickly add in flakes.  Stir so they are coated completely.  It's ok to crush the flakes in the process.  Press into prepared pan.  Melt chips in microwave at 30 sec intervals, stirring between, until melted.  Pour over bars.  Chill in freezer for 30 min, until chocolate just set.  You want the chocolate to be slightly hard, but not totally frozen.  If you wait until the chocolate is fully hardened it will shatter and split off the top of your bars when you slice.  Cut into 12 pieces.  Store in freezer.
