  1. Base:.
  2. Preheat oven to 350.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flours, brown sugar, and salt. Cut in butter and peanut butter with a pastry blender until it resembles coarse meal. Mix in the egg. Evenly press dough into a 10X15" baking pan.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until it takes on a golden brown color and looks set. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  5. Chocolate Side:.
  6. Place chopped chocolate and peanut butter in a medium microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave at half power, stirring often, until smooth. Gently stir in Rice Krispies.
  7. Butterscotch Side:.
  8. Place butterscotch chips and peanut butter in a medium microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave at half power, stirring often, until smooth. Gently stir in Rice Krispies.
  9. Spread chocolate mixture on 1/2 of the warm crust and then spread the butterscotch mixture on the other. This needs to be done before the crust cools - when you are spreading make sure to press down so everything adhears. Let cool for several hours for the bars to set before cutting.

I asked DH where he thought the breakfast part came into the name and he said because of the cereal. Makes sense but as Debber said, I wouldn't say these are a breakfast bar. More like an anytime bar. Although I guess if you were in a hurry:-) Thanks Celine~Tagged for 123 HitWonders 08'

OOooh, these were so good! Plus, easy-to-make....and eat (I must admit!). The crust is wonderful--with that taste of peanut butter...yummy! Here's a good one...I THOUGHT these were a breakfast bar sort of thing! :-) Well, I had every intention of feeding these to my kids for breakfast this morning, but once I got them going, I realized this was a bar-COOKIE type of thing! :-) You can imagine how disappointed my three chicklets were at THAT decision! However, they are having NO trouble polishing them off as snacks! I've set some aside for fellowship hour at church tonight, too....where I'm certain they will disappear! Okay, so I didn't have Rice Crispies, and SOMEONE used the last of the butterscotch chips and didn't mark the shopping list, so I used chocolate chips for the whole thing---no complaints from ANYONE! What I did for the Rice Crispies, was measure out an equal amount of Cheerios....then semi-chopped them in my blender...so most of them were no longer whole pieces. Added a very LOVELY crunch to the topping---a very adequate substitute for the R. Crispies I think. Definitely a KEEPER!
