Ingredients

    1 cup white sugar
    1 cup light corn syrup
    1 cup peanut butter
    6 cup Special K Cereal
    1 cup butterscotch chips
    1 cup chocolate chips

Directions

Boil the sugar and the corn syrup at a full boil for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Stir in the peanut butter. At this point either stir in the special K (if you used a large pot) or pour the mixture over the special K cereal in a mixing bowl. Place the cereal mixture in a well greased 9 X 13 pan. Melt the butterscotch and chocolate chips together and pour over the cereal mixture. Eat whenever you desire.

Notes: For easy cutting, let cool for an hour or so and then cut them all up. Do not smooth or compact the special K mixture or topping more than the minimum required to spread it.

    I've been making this recipe for about 12 years now... Love love love these. We used to call them Special "Katie" Bars because my friend Katie's mom made them all the time for us when we were kids. - 7/7/10

    You can also use Rice Krispies -- and I know them as "Scotcheroos." Be aware that they don't stay fresh for long so eat them fast :-). - 1/25/09

    This is by far our families favorite "bar" cookie. Yum. I love the peanut and chocolate connection along with the added crunch. It is the one recipe my kids took to college with them. They don't need to bake in an oven and are so simple to make. - 3/22/07
