 Yeah....sounds kookie, but that's how mom would fix it when we were kids, and I still love it that way.  You have to put in a ton of karo syrup, though, or it just makes the peanut butter seize up.  Then I just get a couple slices of really fresh sandwich bread and put just a spoonful on the bread, take a bite, another spoonful, another bite......makes me feel like a kid again when I eat it:)

Hubby does this all the time and now my 8 yr does too! But they just use regular maple syrup.

 I think since I grew up with the karo syrup, I just could never get into using maple syrup.  We would use it in a pinch, but I prefer karo:)  Either way, it's a great snack!

 Sounds like the ingredients in the stir-fries I like.  I love that this is wrapped in a burrito:)
