Peanut Butter and Butterscotch Rice Krispies Squares

Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This recipe was submitted to the cookbook by Florence Miller who is my Nana's sister and always called 'Aunt Puss' by myself. I look the most like her than of any of the other Muir family members I have met.

My aunt has made these my whole life, we call them "addicta-bars". Once you start you can't stop. They are delicious. I was thrilled to find a recipe that reminded me of my childhood. I love these. I actually mixed about 6oz each of the chocolate and butterscotch chips and then just spread it like frosting and allowed to chill for about 30 minutes before I cut them. YUMMY!

I mean really, how could you give these any less than 5 stars?!?!?!? Great tasting and super easy. I cut the recipe in half and used a smaller baking dish. I also used Splenda in place of the sugar to decrease on calories and it worked like a charm; I may even use half the Splenda next time. I used half the amt of butterscotch chips, melted them and smeared them over the treats, then melted half the amt of choco chips and did zig zags over the top. Next time I am going to throw the butterscotch chips whole into the cereal mixture and then drizzle just the chocolate on top. Thanks for a keeper!

YUMMY!!!! DH wanted to take a treat to work this evening and this was exactly the right kind of easy, no bake, no gosh do I have "that" in the pantry treat to make! This is going straight into my "Go To" file! I did run out of white corn syrup so used enough honey to make up the difference. Also melted my chips in the microwave, stirring after every minute. Worked great! I will use this often I'm sure! Made for 1.2.3 Hits
