I saw these on A Blog About Food and thought I would try them since I had all the ingredients on hand. They were fun to make...my 4 year old had a blast with it. I won't make them again since they are too sweet for my taste and I didn't realize they had peanut butter in them (of which I am not a fan). This recipe is also on Allrecipes here and has great reviews. I took the bars to work to share and the result was that they are REALLY sweet and people liked them but weren't fawning all over them or anything. If this is your type of dessert treat and you like peanut butter be sure to try them.
1 cup white sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups crispy rice cereal
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
Butter a 9x13 inch baking pan.
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar and corn syrup, and bring to a rolling boil. Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter. Mix in the rice cereal until evenly coated. Press the mixture into the prepared pan.
In a glass bowl in the microwave, melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips, stirring occasionally until smooth and well blended. Spread over the top of the bars. Chill until set, then cut into bars.
