I was first introduced to this deadly dessert by my sister-in-law Amy! This is one of those desserts that is so sO SO good…that I can now only make it when I have somewhere to take at least half of the pan! If I let the whole pan sit on our counter or in our fridge…the results would not be pretty. Between my husband and I, there would be…no…survivors.
This is an extremely simple recipe with only 7 ingredients! It is a Rice Crispy Cereal Recipe and I think it can be found on the side of some of the cereal boxes or on their website! It is really really good and even though you probably already know how to make this, if I am introducing this to even one person…then it is worth it!
- 6 Cups Rice Crispy Cereal
- 1 Cup Peanut Butter ( I use Creamy)
- 1 Cup light Corn Sryup
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1 12 oz bag of semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2-3/4 bag of butterscotch chips. (more or less depending on how butterscotchy you want it!)
Now it is really easy to make! You can make it on the stove if you like, but I just use a glass measuring cup and the microwave.
First step is to mix together the corn syrup, peanut butter and sugar and heat in the microwave for 4-5 minutes stirring every minute. Stir in the Vanilla and heat for 1 more minute just until all of the sugar has dissolved.
Once it is all mixed, pour it over the pre-measured Rice Crispy Cereal and stir to combine.
I always line my 13×9 in pan with foil for this recipe as it makes it really easy to get out of the pan and also makes for easy cleanup. Do pour this mix into your pan lined with foil and then press it down into an even layer making sure to press into the corners.
Now is the time to melt your chocolate and butterscotch chips in the microwave! I usually rinse out the glass measuring cup and just use it again for this step. Pour all of the chips into the measuring cup and microwave for 30 seconds at a time and then stir until all the way melted and combined. Be sure to check every 30 seconds so that the chocolate does not burn. Now simply pour this molten chocolatey goodness over the Rice Crispy treats and spread into an even layer with your spatula…and then lick the spatula clean when you are done….that is a mandatory step of this recipe!
Place the pan in the fridge for at least 30 minutes so that the chocolate can harden and then feel free to take it out and eat it up! It really is sinfully good!
I cannot stress how easy the foil makes the removal and clean up! You gotta try it!
