Carmel Crunch Topping

This recipe is adapted from this recipe at Food.com by celestial_star03.  The above doesn't have the crispy rice cereal in it as I prepared it in advance for a Carmel Apple Pizza (will post that on 10/20/11 as it is part of food challenge by Lady Behind The Curtain) but I did also try it on ice cream mixing in the cereal after heating and it was delicious. 
Recipe:
-   1/4 cup butter
-   1/3 cup almonds, chopped
-   1/3 cup light corn syrup
-   1/3 cup packed brown sugar
-   1/3 cup peanut butter 
-   1/3 cup water
-   1/3 cup crisp rice cereal, coarsely crushed 


Melt the butter in a pan.  Saute the almonds over medium-low heat for approximately 5 minutes or until the almonds brown.











Add the corn syrup, water and brown sugar to the pan

















Mix thoroughly.










Add peanut butter and mix.  Cook for 4-5 minutes until it becomes bubbly and starts to thicken up.


If serving over ice cream, add crisp rice cereal and stir in and the spoon over ice cream.







If storing, do not add Crisp Rice cereal until just before ready to serve.  Heat up first (put in bowl and microwaved) then add Crisp Rice cereal and pour over ice cream.
