Dear friends, I am going to pass on an easy recipe, one that's a cinch with kids. The best part: I get requests for these puppies all the time.
Of course, you won't be nearly as impressed when you find out just how lazy I am.
1 cup of sugar
1 cup white corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups Rice Krispies
2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups butterscotch chips
*Combine sugar and syrup in heavy saucepan.
*Heat, stirring, to boiling.
*Remove from heat.
*Stir in peanut butter.
*Pour syrup mixture over Rice Krispies in large mixing bowl.
(This is where I supposed to warn you: IT WILL BE HOT. But you knew that, didn't you? You have to work quickly, to cover all the Krispies.)
*Mix thoroughly with wooden spoon.
*Press into greased 13x9x2 pan.
*Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together over low heat or in double boiler. (I prefer ghirardelli chips. They melt easily; I haven't burned them like I'm prone to do.)
*Pour melted chips over Krispies; spread evenly.
*Allow to cool. Cut into 1" squares.
(Sometimes I cut the sugar down, used Rice Syrup to be slightly healthier.)
I usually give some away,
before I inhale them because kids and coworkers alike can't resist.
What kind of treats do you make this time of year?
