I remember my mom making this for me when I was a kid and she just recently made them for my kids. They are in love! Of course Royal wanted to make this for the Kids Favorite for the Kids Kitchen Monthly Blog Hop! It’s so good I couldn’t say no.
This recipe is really pretty simple, although it does make use of the stove. Royal and I always have the safety talk before going in the kitchen about hot surfaces and sharp knives. He’s never been burned, but he understands the seriousness of a hot stove.
This is almost all of the ingredient necessary (Yes, I totally forgot the sugar for the picture! Ack!)
Start by buttering or oiling your dish. We used an 8×8 Pyrex for this. If you double the recipe, you should use a 9×13. (A 9×9 pan would work as well, it would just be a bit thinner, and you should make more of the chocolate butterscotch mixture to cover the top)
We had no butter so we used oil for the pyrex. Just pour in about a tablespoon full…
And spread with a paper towel to get the bottom and sides.
Put aside the pyrex and pull out a pot! Add 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of light corn syrup and heat on medium until it bubbles.
We stirred almost constantly and it took about 5 minutes.
After the mixture bubbles, add 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Stir until well mixed.
Add 3 cups of Rise Krispies. And mix. It took us a bit to get it well mixed. Work rather slowly so the rice krispies don’t fly everywhere!
When it is all mixed, add the rice krispie to the Pyrex.
Use wax paper to push the rice krispies down and into the corners. It needs to be fairly well compacted.
Put the rice krispie mixture aside. Add 3 oz of butterscotch and 3 oz of semi-sweet chocolate morsals to another pot. Heat on low.
Stir frequently so it doesn’t burn until the mixture is very smooth.
Spread over the rice krispie mixture. And if you want, add a fun little design. Then cover with plastic wrap and ut in the fridge for about 20 minutes, or until it is cooled.
Cut and serve!!
