Special “K” Bars
·1 cup sugar
·1 cup light karo syrup
·1 (12 oz.) jar crunchy peanut butter
·6 cups special k cereal
·1 small pkg. (6-oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
·1 pkg. (12-oz.) butterscotch chips
How to Make Special “K” Bars
- Lightly butter a 13X9 inch pan ( for thicker bars use a 9x9 pan); set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix sugar and Karo syrup. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, or just until sugar is dissolved. NOTE: Remove immediately after the sugar is dissolved. Do not let BOIL. This will over cook the mixture and cause the bars to be hard as concrete when they set up.
- Remove bowl from microwave; add peanut butter to the sugar mixture and stir until smooth.
- Stir in the cereal; mix well.
- Put the mixture into the prepared pan and pat the mixture firmly into the pan. (Using a lightly buttered piece of waxed paper works great for patting down the mixture in the pan).
- In a medium bowl, combine the chocolate and butterscotch chips and microwave for about 2 minutes or until melted; stirring once or twice during the process.
- Pour/spread over top of cereal mixture. Refrigerate just long enough to set the chips. Remove, and cut into bars.
