  • Remaining half of cereal mixture
    Scoop melted butterscotch mixture onto cereal and stir to combine. Try not to break the cereal up too much.
  • Half of cereal mixture in pan
    Press half of the cereal mixture into a lightly buttered 9x13 glass pan. And chill.
  • 5
    Melt Chocolate chips. butter and powdered sugar over low heat, again being careful of scorching. I added a little bit of oil because mine seemed to be getting really dry.
  • Put on the chocolate!
    Put the chocolate mixture on top of the chilled cereal in pan. Spread as well as you can. A butter knife dipped in hot water helps with the spreading.
