Special K (OR Rice Krispie) Bars

 

1 c. white syrup

½ c. sugar

½ c. peanut butter; regular or chunky

1 c. chocolate chips, semi-sweet or dark chocolate

1 c. butterscotch chips

6 c. Special K or Rice Krispie cereal

 

Put cereal in large greased bowl (I use Pam).

 

Mix syrup and sugar in pan and cook until rolling boil; let boil about 1 minute and remove from stove. Then add peanut butter. Mix well and pour over cereal. Mix thoroughly. Press into 7 x 11 pan. Melt chips in microwave and frost bars. Cut when cool.

 

NOTE: Because these are so popular I usually double the batch and put in 3 - 8x8 pans.

I did it Verlee!  I made the Rice Krispie Bars this afternoon.  I LOVE marshmallow Rice Krispie treats but after tasting these I'll never make them again.  Oh, they are so good.
I melted the butterscotch morsels and spread them over the top like icing.  Then I melted the semi-sweet morsels in a zip lock bag and squirted them in a wiggly design over the top.
I'm so tickled. They go to church tomorow - it's my turn for treats for the little kids and they will be such a big hit.
Thanks again Verlee.

So happy you like the recipe, Nancy. It's one of our favorites as well. Good idea with the chocolate squiggles on top. You could even frost them per the recipe, and then squiggle melted WHITE chips over the top. That way you get the full chocolate/butterscotch frosting flavor, and a decorative touch.

Good Morning Verlee and everyone!  I'm so excited about taking this "new" treat to the women directing the little kids at church and, of course, the kids.  I just took it out of the ' fridge to set on the counter to soften up a bit.  Some of the kids eating this are missing their front teeth!
Next time I make it I'll use a 9x13 pan to make thinner, easier to eat, pieces.  And next time I make it I'll cut into pieces before it gets so solid - Smile

Oops, I should have mentioned about the thickness and difficulty in cutting. Yes, I usually cut them right after the frosting sets, and before storing them.
