Chocolate Butterscotch Peanut Butter Cereal Bars with
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling
Perfect blend of flavors. Had to make them for a crowd nothing was left.
Wish I would have read the reviews before making this. I was making the bars for an open house and followed the recipe exactly. They turned out hard as a rock and I had to start all over, good thing I planned ahead and had extra time!
This is a great recipe...I make it all the time..DO NOT bring the syrup and sugar to a boil or cook 2-3 min...They will be so hard they will break your teeth. Heat just until the sugar is dissolved, then add the peanut butter then the special K. It should still be warm when you press in the pan so place the chips on top and they should melt on their own, then you can spread them...
This is a special treat in our house. We do cut the peanut butter to 1 c. And we remove the saucepan from the burner as soon as the sugar and corn syrup start to bubble. If it's cooked to long, it will make the bars very hard. Enjoy!!

I have made a version of this recipe for years. My recipe calls for only 1 cup creamy peanut butter and 1 cup semisweet chocolate chip. I use Rice Krispies instead of Special K cereal. I have never refrigerated my bars as they set up fast enough. I think the previous reviewer may have over cooked the corn syrup peanut-butter , and that is why they were "hard as a rock." I cook mine until the mixture just begins to bubbles This bars do not last long in my house!

Loved the bars but had way too much chocolate on top for us. When I make this again I will use 1 cup semi-sweet chips and 1/2 cup butterscotch chips. My husband's family makes a similar recipe that uses crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy and then rolls them in a ball while warm. (no chocolate topping) They are amazing!
These are just like the ones my grandma makes every Christmas. I enjoy making them for my own family every year.
