This has been a favorite for all of you. I wonder when this recipe first appeared on the box of Rice Krispies? I remember one time, just after I made this recipe, Brian stopped at the house after work and had several. I fixed a plate for him to take to Reese, Rachelle, and Hether. He told me he would probably eat them all on the way home. Later he called to say he had shared them.


  • 6 cups Rice Krispies
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup (light) white Karo syrup
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips


  1. Place Rice Krispies in large bowl.
  2. Cook syrup and sugar over medium heat, stirring consistently, and when it comes to a boil, remove from heat.
  3. Add peanut butter and stir until smooth.
  4. Pour over cereal and stir until it is well coated.
  5. Press into a buttered 9" by 13" pan.
  6. Melt chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in microwave, stir till smooth and spread over cereal.
  7. Let cool till frosting is firm or refrigerate for a few minutes. If you leave it in the refrigerator too long, it is hard to cut.
