This is a delicious sweet recipe that was given to me by my SIL. It combines peanut butter and butterscotch with a wonderful chocolate frosting in a unique bar, that is easy to prepare. We receive a plate of these every Christmas, and they disappear fast. Sometimes when I make these, I double the frosting recipe to have a thicker frosting, but that would be up to you. Hope you enjoy them too.
- 2⁄3 cup butter or 2⁄3 cup margarine, softened
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1 1⁄3 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1 (6 ounce) package butterscotch chips
- 1 1⁄4 cups creamy peanut butter
- 3 cups corn flakes
- 3 tablespoons butter, Melted
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
- 2 tablespoons milk (or more if needed)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- For the crust, cream the butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the flour and mix well (mix may be a little dry). Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9 by 13 inch pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until done, watch closely so it doesn't get to brown, it should be pale in color. Cool completely.
- For the topping, combine the sugar and corn syrup in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add the butterscotch chips and peanut butter, mix well until the chips are completely melted and the peanut butter is throughly mixed through. Stir in the corn flakes and carefully spread over the crust.
- For the frosting combine the melted butter and cocoa together until smooth, add the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk and mix well until reaching a spreading consistancy. You may have to add more milk to achieve this. May frost while the bars are still warm. Cool and cut into bars. Enjoy.
