I made these laste last night for a BBQ with my neighbors. It went over big! No one knew how easy it was...I decided to cut it before I brought it. Good thing as it was rock hard from being in the fridge. I left it out and by the time we got to dessert it was PERFECT! So quick, easy and tastes so good.

This always disappears quickly whenever I have taken it to a bake sale! We love it at home, too. It's also easy to make!

Delicious!

This is the best variation on Rice Krispy Bars that I've ever found and I've made it several times now, each with fantastic results! I particularly love the texture and taste of the chocolate/butterscotch topping! This is definitely a keeper! Delicious!

I love these bars. They are one of the easiest recipes that I've made. The measurements are right on. They are great for a quick last minute dessert. These remind me of childhood, my mother used to make these and bring them to every single family get together.

CHOCOLATE BUTTERSCOTH CEREAL BARS

by J. JUDY , WARREN, OH on Aug. 2007

THIS WAS A VERY SIMPLE RECIPE TO MAKE AND MY WHOLE FAMILY REALLY ENJOYED THEN, IN FACT THEY WERE ALL GONE IN ONE DAY. I EVEN TRIED THEM WITHOUT TOASTING THE RICE CEREAL AND THEY WERE JUST AS GOOD. ALSO THEY ARE GREAT USING CRUSHED CORN FLAKES AND CRUSHED FROSTED FLAKES. IT'S A GREAT RECIPE TO USE FOR ANY OCCASION, EVEN PICNICS THEY ARE A GREAT HIT.THESE WOULD BE GREAT TO USE AT BAKE SALES FOR SCHOOLS OR FOR ANY TYPE OF SALES. I AM REALLY GLAD THAT I TRIED THIS RECIPE FOR ITS A KEEPER WITH ME IN MY RECIPE BOOK

I LOVE THESE! Forget the kids! Whip up a batch for yourself on movie day, or while you enjoy a relaxing afternoon while the kids are at school. I can't make them too often as I eat them all by myself!
