Total Time

This was a favorite of my grampa's and so it has special meaning. I always think of him when I make them. They're just a great little treat to have on hand and also freeze well to pull out at any time.


  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream together the butter and brown sugar.
  3. Add the flour and press into a buttered 9x13 baking pan.
  4. Bake 15 minutes.
  5. In a sauce pan combine the sugar and light corn syrup and bring to a boil.
  6. Remove from heat.
  7. Add butterscotch chip and peanut butter.
  8. Stir until melted.
  9. Add corn flakes.
  10. Spread carefully onto the crumb crust.
  11. Cool and cut into squares.

We enjoyed this recipe but I think I would like it better without the crust. I used frosted flakes in the mixture instead of corn flakes. Unlike Nott, I didn't wait for the crust to cool so mixture did not spread easily. (Hungry kids...) Made for 123 Hits

This is a great tasting combination, but the recipe is a little incomplete. I was not sure if I should pour the hot peanut butter mixture over the cooled cookie crust or the hot cookie crust. I decided to wait until the cookie cooled. It worked fine. Would probably work fine on a hot crust too. How do you do it? I used to make something called Christmas chuckles which was just the peanut butter, butterscotch mixture with a bit more cornflakes and dropped into clumps on wax paper. No cookie crust. I like the idea of having it on a crust. It is like a double treat. Thank you for posting.
