Equipment

  • 9x13 inch baking dish

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar 200g
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup corn syrup 240mL
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies
  • 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 12 oz butterscotch chips

Instructions

  • Prepare an 9x13 inch baking dish either by lining with parchment paper or with a light coating of butter.
  • Combine the corn syrup and sugar to a large pot and place over medium heat stirring frequently until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat once the mixture comes to a boil then stir in peanut butter, mixing until incorporated.
  • Add the rice Krispies to the mixture and fold in until thoroughly coated then transfer to your baking dish. Use a spoon or spatula to spread out and smooth.
  • Melt the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips to a heatproof bowl either over a pot of simmering water or in 40 second bursts in a microwave, stirring after each burst.
  • Spread the chocolate mixture over the base and smooth out. Allow chocolate to set before cutting.

Notes

  • One thing to mind is the corn syrup/sugar mixture, just remove from heat as soon as it starts boiling. Don't let it boil for long, or the bars will be very hard.
  • Work quickly, the mixture will cool down and set pretty fast.
  • Don't burn the chocolate! Either use a double boiler or short spurts in the microwave.
  • You can add a tablespoon of butter, coconut oil or shortening to the chocolate and butterscotch chips to help them melt smoothly.
