Ingredients ~

  • ¼cup sugar
  • 1 cup white Karo Syrup
  • 8 ounces (1 stick) butter
  • Dash of salt (optional… may be salt in your peanut butter)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups peanut butter
  • 6-7 cups Rice Krispies
  • 1 12-ounce package of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Method ~

Combine sugar, Karo syrup and butter in a saucepan, bring to a boil. Remove from heat.  Add salt (if using), vanilla, and peanut butter.  Add 6 -7 cups Rice Krispies.  Pat into a buttered 9 x 13 pan.  Heat the chocolate chips and the butterscotch chips (10 seconds at a time) in a microwave until just melted, mix until creamy, then spread over the Rice Krispies.

If you want a thinner layer of frosting, simply cut the chips back to 6 ounces.

But then, why would you do that?
