Ingredients

  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 6 cups rice krispy cereal
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips

Instructions

  • In large pan or dutch oven add your corn syrup and sugar.
  • Stir your corn syrup and stir over medium heat until it just comes to a boil and sugar dissolves.
  • Remove from heat and stir in your peanut butter until combined.
  • Once combined add in your Rice Krispies and stir until everything is coated.
  • Spread into a greased 9"x13" baking dish, set aside.
  • In double boiler or microwave melt together your butterscotch chips and chocolate chips and spread over bars and set aside to harden.

Notes

  1. We really prefer a double boiler when it comes to melting chocolate, it helps it from seizing and you don't have to stop and stir in intervals.
  2. Do not over boil your sugar and corn syrup mixture, as notated above this can cause everything to get hard and not chewy like they should be.
  3. If you are not a fan of butterscotch you can absolutely just use all regular chocolate chips for this recipe. 
  4. Another well known type of bars like these are known as Special K bars, you can use crushed up Special K cereal or cornflakes in the same amount for these bars.
  5. We have not tired any other nut butters in this recipe, but I suppose you could use almond butter, but the flavor will be a little different.
