Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats

Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
from Margie M.

1 cup white sugar
1 cup light Karo corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter, smooth or chunky
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips

Spray a large bowl and a 9x13 pan with not-stick cooking spray.

Measure out the Rice Krispies into that large bowl.

Put sugar and Karo into a saucepan and cook on your stovetop over medium heat just until it comes to a rolling boil. Remove from heat immediately and stir in the peanut butter until melted and smooth. (The longer it boils the harder/tougher the treats).

Fold peanut butter mixture into the Rice Krispies until evenly incorporated. Then pour into the 9x13 pan. Gently push it to fill the pan and lightly even the top so it is level with the back of your mixing spoon. Do not pack tightly.

Melt the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips together. I put them into my 2-cup siz Pyrex measuring cup and microwave them on defrost until melted. Stir until well blended. Spread on the cooled peanut butter treats. Let the 'frosting' set up before cutting and serving. This can take a long time. I put the pan into my freezer for 5 minutes or so until the chocolate sets. Cut, serve and enjoy!
