This recipe is from the was-band’s grandma. We always got so excited in college when a package came from Bubbie. It almost always included these mouth-watering treats….and if the room mates caught wind of a care package it was gone in a day. They’re one of my kid’s favorites and they always get rave reviews at parties! Enjoy!
Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Bars
1 cup white Karo syrup
1 cup white sugar
1-1/2 cups peanut butter (I just use creamy JIF seems to work great, but I’ve never tried the natural kind ’cause it might be too oily)
3 to 3-1/2 cups Rice Krispy cereal
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 Tbs. butter
combine Karo syrup and sugar and bring to a boil…take off heat immediately
add peanut butter and stir until dissolved
add rice krispy cereal and mix well
Pat into 9×13 pan (it’s a bit hot, but it really helps if your palms are a little wet)
In a double boiler melt the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and butter. Spread over mixture in the pan and refrigerate until cool….maybe a couple of hours?
Cut into squares and you’re ready to go!
Perfect dessert for that Labor Day potluck! Have a FABULOUS weekend!
