Special K Bars – classic no bake bars that are super easy to make! Loaded with peanut butter and topped with chocolate and butterscotch for a delicious flavor combination.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 (9.6 oz box) Special K cereal (approximately 8 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan melt together the sugar and corn syrup over medium heat. You want to stir frequently until it starts to bubble along the edges. You don’t want the mixture to really start to boil, just be on the edge.
  2. Remove from the heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract until smooth.
  3. Pour over the cereal and mix until well coated.
  4. Pour into a 13×9 inch baking dish, and press into an even layer.
  5. In a microwave safe bowl or over a double boiler, melt chocolate chips and butterscotch chips together until smooth. If using a microwave heat in 45 second intervals, stirring after each until melted and smooth.
  6. Pour chocolate mixture over the bars and spread evenly.
  7. Let the bars set up completely (a couple of hours) before serving.

No bake recipes are some of my favorite. They always come together quickly, and no matter what the weather they are always a hit. This combines chocolate, peanut butter, and butterscotch, which is a flavor combination that is insanely delicious!

These Butterscotch Rice Krispie Treats skip the chocolate, but the peanut butter and butterscotch together is just a match made in heaven.
