K Bars

Peanut butter, chocolate, and butterscotch all meld together in this crunchy cereal bar!

Back in the day when I was a college student I was involved in the Baptist Student Ministry.  Many great memories came from there.  It was, and still is, staffed with the most wonderful secretary you could ever know, Mrs. Barbara Raines.  She is a classic lady and this recipe is straight from her recipe box.  I can still remember how wonderful it tasted back then and I'm so glad the recipe hasn't gotten lost.  This is a no bake recipe and is easily mixed together over the stove.  It has the perfect combination of crunchy and sweet tastiness!

Sack it up and take some to your neighbors!

1 cup sugar
1 cup karo syrup
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
4 cups Special K cereal
6 oz. butterscotch chips
3 oz. chocolate chips

Bring to a boil sugar and karo syrup.  Take off burner and add in crunch peanut butter.  Then gently mix in cereal.  Butter a 9x13 dish and spread cereal mixture in it.  Then melt butterscotch chips and chocolate chips together and spread over top.  Cut into squares and put in refrigerator for 30 minutes for icing to set.  Don't leave in longer than this as it will be too hard.
