SPECIAL-K BARS

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 24-36
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 5 cups Special-K cereal
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips

Directions

  • Place cereal in large bowl and set aside.
  • Combine sugar and corn syrup in medium sized heavy saucepan. Heat until sugar is dissolved and mixture just comes to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter.
  • Pour mixture over cereal and carefully stir with a rubber spatula.
  • Spread mixture in a 9x13 pan. Sprinkle the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips evenly over the top. Place in a 300 degree oven for just a few minutes until chips are soft.* Use a knife or spatula to spread chips together and frost bars.
  • Allow frosting to set, and cut into 24 to 36 bars.
  • *Alternately, melt the chips together over low heat or in microwave and then spread over bars. I like the less messy route.

Notes

These bars were a hit long before Special-K cereal began marketing its low calorie versions. Don't slouch on the ingredients as they are best savored in their full-fat, full-sugared state.
