    Pam-I-Am's Note:

    A retro-recipe from the 60's. Who knew Special K could be so yummy? My girlfriend Debbie brought these to my 2004 christmas cookie exchange. Her mom made these when she was little. The recipe used to be on the back of Special K boxes. She called her mom for the recipe and luckily, after all these years, she still had it! Thanks Sue!!

      I've made something similar to this using chow mein noodles. But didn't have the noodles on hand, so I decided to try using special k. The treats are good but fell apart. I would recommend using less of the cereal so you'll have enough of the butterscotch/peanut butter to bind it together.

      I really enjoy this recipe!!! In addition, I add a layer of melted milk chocolate to the top which everyone really seems to enjoy. I also press it into a 9x13 pan and cut into squares. Great recipe!!!!

      While these tasted good, my treats fell apart and were quite crumbly. Possibly I brought the chips and peanut butter to too high of a temperature (?) But I'm glad you posted this so I could try them. Had always heard about them, but never had an opportunity to try. Thank-you.
