How to Make Crispy Butterscotch, Peanut, Chocolate Bars


  1. Melt butterscotch chips and peanut butter in sauce pan over low heat. Be careful not to scorch.
  2. Put rice cereal in a large bowl.
  3. Scoop melted butterscotch mixture onto cereal and stir to combine. Try not to break the cereal up too much.
  4. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Put the rest of the cereal on top of the chocolate and press down. I found a wet spatula worked great!
  8. Chill for 1 1/2 hours and cut. You can sample now but they will be really crumbly!
  9. Chill at least 4 hours for a good set on the bars...enjoy! (try to eat only one!)
