If these bars have been refrigerated for more than 1 hour, let them stand for 10-15 minutes before cutting. Freeze.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1-1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 6 cups Special K
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips


  1. In a Dutch oven, bring the sugar and corn syrup to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat. Stir in peanut butter until combined. Add cereal; toss to coat. Using a metal spatula, press mixture into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. pan.
  2. In a microwave, melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips; stir until smooth. Spread over cereal mixture. Refrigerate until set. Cut into bars.
