Too sweet for me with Karo, sugar and the chocolate, but DH and DD devoured it! I think I'll used only 1 cup of sugar next time and halve the chocolate/butterscotch topping. Very easy to put together though!

This is most certainly for the sweet-of-tooth, & fortunately for me I have several of those buggers right next to my tongue, SO, these bars were definitely appreciated here! I did, however, cut the recipe in half & used an 8:x8" square pan! We very much enjoyed the combo of chips used here! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe tag]

I thought I had some Special K cereal in my cupboard but turns out I didn't so I used rice krispies cereal which worked well, my sweet tooth Ds and GF loved these bars, thanks for sharing WeekendC!
