It is no secret that I love to bake, make treats and share with friends. I make these frequently, and this week I made them for a friends, school party. There are very EASY to make, basically 6 ingredients, can it get any easier? And are a step up from rice Krispie treats.
Once again, let me warn you, these are not for people who do not like sugar, high fructose corn syrup, peanut butter, chocolate or butterscotch!
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of light corn syrup
1 cup of peanut butter
6 cups of rice krispies, or special K cereal
1 1/2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips
1cup of butterscotch chips
1. Bring sugar and corn syrup just to a boil over medium heat. You want to melt the sugar crystals but not bring to a rolling boil. This will cause the treats to become VERY hard.
2. Remove sugar mixture from stove and stir in peanut butter.
3.Pour mixture over 6 cups of cereal. Stir until coated.
4.Once mixed, pour mixture into either a 9×13 pan for thin treats, or an 8×8 pan for thick ones that has been sprayed with Pam. Pat down the mixture.
5. In small saucepan, melt butterscotch chips and chocolate chips together. Pour mixture over the cereal and spread to coat. Let cool, then cut and enjoy!
