Special K Bars are a Christmas staple that started with my Grandma. They sweet, crunchy, and ooey gooey delicious. Plus, so easy to make that you have no excuse not to try them!

I skipped with white karo and used a homemade simple syrup. I also substituted in Enjoy Life Foods chocolate chips to minimize the amount of dairy in them.
