This was a very easy recipe to put together. My 5 yr old assisted me through the entire process licking the spoons as we went along (just based on the spoon licking she asked if we could make it again sometime). The flavor is unique which is a nice change, and I don't think you could tell outright that there was butterscotch and peanut butter in the recipe but a nice combo of flavor. This is a rich bar recipe so I cut the 8x8 pan into 25 bars which were ample for a sweet tooth. Next time I think I'll let my 11 year old make this by herself for the family - it's hard to find recipes that an 11 year old can make all by herself so she'll be thrilled.
This was good but I had a problem with the chocolate layer not sticking to the rice krispy layers. I also had to add more water to thin out the chocolate, maybe I needed to add even more. I thought I followed the recipe exactly but who knows?!!
Had the recipe for a week and finally bought the ingredients. Being in Oz all the metric hassles came in, and I used a little less chocolate chips then the recipe said. BUT I cannot imagine it could be any better. Having had problems before with chocolate and water, I added it at the very end, and it was fine. Chilled well, cut very well, but it is sooooo rich I would suggest very small squares. Ideal for anyone with a sweet tooth, and so easy! next time I might try a little peppermint essence in the choco layer. adding this to the xmas treats!!!! thanks mark
Oh my God this is so good!!! I have been looking for a rice cereal recipe without marshmello. This is a nice change from cookies and brownies a great addition to hubbys lunch!
First off, the taste was great but I too had a bit of a problem with the rice krispies sticking so next time I will press down harder...maybe they'll stick better...I too think the chocolate layer could be halved. They were easier to cut once they had sat out of the fridge for a bit. I have some peanut butter chips and I'm thinking that they will work well in place of the butterscotch.
These are very, very rich & quite tasty. You really need to have a huge sweet tooth for these rice krispy treats! I enjoyed these, but next time I would cut the chocolate mixture in half - it was so thick, rich & a litle too sweet that not everyone enjoyed them as much. However - these are still very good and I think would be excellent bake sale fare.
Awesome. Easy to make and a hit with everyone who's tried them.
