I think I first had these at some R.S. doing many, MANY years ago, but they remind me most of our daughter Paula and the ‘maker/baker’ she is when visiting here, or the other way around. ♥
Heat until mixture begins to boil:
1 cup light corn syrup (Karo) I like the corn syrup that is NOT the “high fructose” variety.
1 cup white granulated sugar
Remove from heat, and stir in:
1 and 1/2 cups chunky peanut butter (I like the ‘natural’ kind)
2 teaspoons vanilla
Add the above mixture to:
6 cups of Rice Krispie (or Special K) cereal, and stir carefully so as NOT to break the cereal into “crumbs”.
Pat this into a buttered 9×13″ pan. Cool.
Enjoy them ‘as is’, or top with the following:
CHOCOLATE ‘FROSTING’ (optional):
Melt together 1/2 bag of semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips and 1/2 bag of butterscotch chips. Mix well and spread onto bars. Let chocolate frosting cool/harden BEFORE cutting.
