Butterscotch Bones Recipe

Ordinary rice cereal treats get special treatment with the addition of butterscotch flavors.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + chilling YIELD:18 servings


  • 1 package (10 ounces) miniature marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons instant butterscotch pudding mix
  • 6 cups crisp rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 cup vanilla or white chips
  • 1 teaspoon shortening


  • 1. In a large saucepan, combine marshmallows and butter. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until melted. Remove from the heat; stir in pudding mix until blended. Stir in cereal. Press into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • 2. Using a 3-in. bone-shaped cookie cutter, cut out shapes. In a shallow microwave-safe dish, heat the butterscotch and vanilla chips with shortening at 50% power until melted; stir until smooth.
  • 3. Dip bottoms of bones into melted butterscotch mixture; place on foil. Place some mixture in a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag if desired; cut a small hole in a corner of bag and pipe designs over bones. Let stand until set. Gently remove from foil. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
