Newbie baker question! baking vs. refrigerating?
I just made this following peanut butter bar recipe last night:
1 cup honey
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
6 cups corn flakes
-Heat corn syrup and sugar to a light boil and then remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter.
-Pour over the cornflakes in a big bowl and mix it all up.
-Lightly grease an 8x10" (or bigger- but not smaller!) pan and press the cornflake mixture into it.
-Cut into peices and serve.
They turned out great and delicious but I wanted a crunchier texture. As it is, it has a slightly more crunchy texture than a Rice Krispie treat, but I wanted a texture more similiar to a granola bar. As the recipe is now, there is no baking, just refridgerating to set.
I'm very new to baking and cooking in general and I was wondering if I could pop these in the oven for about 15 minutes and if that would make them crunchy like a granola bar, or would just just burn or melt completely?!!
Any info would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.
