“Our mother made these for us as kids, and they continue to be a family favorite. A wonderful combination of peanut butter, and chocolate, and butterscotch with a crispy texture.”

Ingredients

1 cup light corn syrup

1 cup white sugar

1 1/2 cups peanut butter

6 cups crisp rice cereal

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup butterscotch chips

Directions

Generously butter a 9×13 inch baking pan. Set aside.

In a large pot, mix together corn syrup, sugar, and peanut butter. Cook over medium heat, stirring until peanut butter melts. Bring mixture to a boil. Remove from heat, and stir in crisp rice cereal.

Transfer mixture into a well buttered 9×13 inch pan. With your hands well buttered, pat it down into pan.
