Ingredients

  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal OR Special K
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light Karo Syrup
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter I used Peter Pan
  • 1 cup butterscotch morsels
  • 1 cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate morsels

Instructions

  • Line a 13x9 inch metal pan with non-stick foil or line with regular foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Put the cereal in a big mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Combine the sugar and corn syrup in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat to dissolve the sugar. Mixture will go from foggy to clear.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter. Pour over the cereal and stir well. Press tightly into pan.
  • In a bowl set over barely simmering water or using a low setting on microwave, melt the butterscotch chips and chocolate chips together. Pour the melted chip mixture over the krispies and let chocolate cool and set. This should take a few hours. You can speed things up by refrigerating, but the bars will be a little harder to slice.
  • When set, lift foil from pan and set bars on a cutting board. cut into squares.
  • Line a 13x9 inch metal pan with non-stick foil or line with regular foil and spray with cooking spray.

Notes

Cook time is really just approximate setting and cooling time
