  • 1 c corn syrup (light)
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1 c creamy peanut butter
  • 6 c Special K cereal (Rice Krispies can be used too)
  • 1 c milk chocolate chips
  • 1 c butterscotch chips
  • ½ c butter


  • Melt together corn syrup and sugar until sugar is dissolved (don't let it boil).
  • Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until smooth.
  • Add Special K or Rice Krispies, stirring along the way.
  • Grease 9x13 pan and add mix to pan. (Trick: I use a buttered spoon to spread evenly in the pan)
  • Melt chocolate chips and butterscotch chips together with 1/2 c butter, 30 seconds at a time in the microwave until melted.
  • Spread over the bars.
  • Refrigerate until hardened.
  • Cut and serve.
