I have been making this recipe for 23 years, since I met my husband; it's his favorite treat!! Our recipe is nearly identical, except it doesn't include the sugar (and it's very sweet with just the peanut butter and corn syrup), or the butter (and again, the chocolate and butterscotch combination is very rich alone, and doesn't need the butter, too), and it is so delicious, such a treat for everyone who samples these bars. Thank you for posting the recipe. My husband wants me to make them again!
I can't make these very often because I want to eat them all at once when I do!
Loved this - made with rice krispies, so I guess technically it isn't Special K Bars, but was really good.
Super yummy! Made this with leftover cereal I had on hand (Wheaties & Crispix) and the family loved it. Followed a fellow reviewers idea to sprinkle chips over top then place in warm oven for 5 min. Spread easily and tasted great!
Just like my grandma used to make!! Mmmmmm. She never used butter for the frosting...but I like it much better with it. It's easier to get on the bars and gives the chocolate a richer, more milk chocolate taste. Instead of dumping the whole bowl of it on, I repeatedly take a fork, dip it in the chocolate and shake the fork back and forth over the bars (and only end up using probably a quarter of it). It gives them a really pretty look and makes it so the chocolate isn't so thick...which I hate.
yum, I brought to tailgating at the ballpark and they were eaten in record time. Thanks!
My 10-yr-old daughter had a craving for special K bars, so we tried this recipe and it really hit the spot! To lighten it up a bit, we cut the sugar to 1/2 c., cut the butter in half, and added a bit more rice krispies than it called for--the chocolate topping was a little harder to spread, but still it was a delicious treat. My little girl is happy! Thank you!
I grew up on these and LOVE them!
These are GREAT! I brought these to work after refrigerating over night, and co-workers were complaining i didnt bring more! i reduced the butter to 1/4 cup and i used margarine, but used a bit more chocolate and butterscotch chips. also used about 6 cups of Cocoa Krispies instead of 7, and the bars were still chewy with a great crunch to them. thanks so much for this recipe, and i will be making these again very soon! -Emily
