These are my daughter's favorite! If you have the time it is fun to decorate each square to your liking with cake decorating icing.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 236.59 ml sugar
  • 236.59 ml white syrup (Karo)
  • 236.59 ml chunky peanut butter
  • 4.92 ml vanilla
  • 1419.54 ml Rice Krispies
  • 473.18 ml milk chocolate chips
  • 473.18 ml butterscotch chips


  1. Bring the sugar and syrup to a boil and remove from heat. Add peanut butter and vanilla; stir until blended and smooth.
  2. Pour peanut butter mixture over Rice Krispies and mix well. The cereal will incorporate, it may take some patience! Press into a buttered 9x13 pan. I usually put a little butter on my hands and pat evenly into pan.
  3. Melt chips on 50 % power in your microwave in 1 minute intervals. Keep stirring to make sure the chips melt evenly and to avoid baking the chips. Once the chips are melted to a satiny texture spread over top of Rice Krispie mixture. Let cool. Cover and keep in refrigerator if weather is warm.
  4. These are sweet, when cutting keep the squares small!

I forgo the butterscotch chips and melt the chocolate chips with 1 cup of peanut butter. So yummy!!
