adapted from MyRecipes.com aka Cooking Light
1 3/4 cups creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup light-colored corn syrup (I used the reduced sugar version)
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) chopped lightly salted, dry-roasted peanuts (I used half unsalted peanuts to cut down on the salt)
3 1/2 cups (4 ounces) whole-grain flaked cereal (such as Total), finely crushed
Cooking spray (nonstick foil worked great)
1/3 cup (2 ounces) chopped dark chocolate
1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook 4 minutes or just until mixture begins to boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in peanuts and cereal. Spread mixture evenly into a 13 x 9–inch baking pan coated with cooking spray or the nonstick foil.
2. Place the dark chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until chocolate melts, stirring every 20 seconds. Drizzle chocolate evenly over peanut mixture. Score into 36 bars while warm.

This is what these swag bars taste like. The peanut chew candy. Peanutty and chewy on the inside....dark chocolate on the outside. Of course the candy is enrobed in dark chocolate....the swag is only 'topped'. Regardless, the taste is the same and so luscious!
