Special K Bars

Recipe by Olive
READY IN: 25mins
SERVES: 20-25


  • 1
    cup Karo syrup
  • 1
    (12 ounce) jar crunchy peanut butter
  • 6
    cups Special K cereal
  • 1
    (6 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1
    (12 ounce) package butterscotch chips


  • In a large mixing bowl, mix sugar and Karo syrup; microwave on high for 3-4 minutes, or until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove after sugar is dissolved. Do not boil. This is important. Bars will be hard as concrete if mixture continues to boil.
  • Remove bowl from microwave; add crunchy peanut butter to the sugar mixture and stir until smooth. Stir in the Special K cereal and mix well.
  • Pat the mixture firmly into a lightly buttered 13X9 inch pan. Using a lightly buttered or greased piece of waxed paper works great for patting down the mixture.(To make thicker bars -- use a 9x9 pan).
  • In a medium bowl, combine the chocolate and butterscotch chips and microwave for about 3-4 minutes until melted; stirring once or twice during melting.
  • Spread over top of cereal mixture. Refrigerate just long enough to set the chips.
  • Remove, and cut into bars.
