It's fun to say. They're fun to make. And, thanks to the chocolate, butterscotch, and peanut butter, they're even more fun to eat.

Ingredients

  • 1  Cup  light corn syrup
  • 1  Cup  sugar
  • 1  Cup  peanut butter
  • 6  Cups  Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1  Cup  semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1  Cup  butterscotch chips

Directions

Place corn syrup and sugar into 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter. Mix well. Add Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated. Press mixture into 13-by-9-by-2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Set aside.

Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Spread evenly over cereal mixture. Let stand until firm. Cut into 2-inch-by-1-inch bars when cool.

Note: Before measuring the corn syrup, coat your measuring cup with cooking spray — the syrup will pour easily out of the cup.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
