Why I Love This Recipe

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.


Ingredients You'll Need

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.


Questions, Comments & Reviews


I LOVE these! They sold them at the local grocery store's deli when I was in college... you bought a chunk of it... broken off a big sheet of the stuff. YUM... very good memories. Thanks!
