Lightly grease a long rectangular baking tray.
In a large sauce pan, combine sugar and golden syrup. Cook over medium heat until boiling. Stir in peanut butter until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the cereal. Pat the cereal mixture down into the baking tray, spreading it out to cover as much as possible with out leaving holes.
Melt peanut butter and chocolate chips in the microwave. Spread the melted mixture over the cereal mixture and refrigerate to set.
with all that golden syrup, I felt that 200g sugar was too much so I halved the amount stated and they turned out just right for our taste. I used cheerios that I crushed a little simply because I needed to use them up. the whole family loved them. didn't use the peanut butter cups, I just added an extra tablespoon of peanut butter to the melted chocolate - 08 Apr 2014
