Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats

May is CRAZY!  School ends here in less than 2 weeks and it seems like we are involved in non-stop programs and activities. My baby is graduating from Pre-School (which is sad…but not too sad.  She missed the school deadline so she will be back in Pre-School next year.  Which means I get one more year before I have to send her off to school with the big kids…sniff!)

For her graduation I signed up to bring some treats. I dug through my old recipes and decided to whip up some Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats also known as Scotcheroos.  These are so yummy.  They also have Butterscotch and Chocolate in them!

It is a good thing I gave most of them away.  These things are not good for you at all…but then again…they are TREATS!

Want the recipe?  I thought you might.

    As a retired Home Economist know this is one of my students all time favorite recipes for the last 25+ years. We used Special K cereal to up the nutritional value. They are not a bad breakfast alternative when served with a glass of milk for those adverse to eating breakfast.

    OMG! Those look to die for! Must make some this weekend…and then give most of them away because I would surely eat them all! Definitely not on my ‘diet’ prior to going on vacation to the Dominican Republic in less than a month. :)

    I made these for Superbowl and my chocolate did not melt down on the top of the rice krispies. The mixture cooled way too fast with my stirring and I had to melt my chocolate in a double boiler. It was kind of a pain in the butt. They were good, but they took a bit more work than I wanted.

    Which type of Karo syrup are you using? Probably the clear, corn syrup type. Could you use one of the brown, table syrup ones?
