This recipe is super! I have been making this one for years. When you press the cereal mixture into pan, use a flat metal lasagna spatula sprayed lightly with cooking spray and press mixture down firmly. Another good tip is to spray cooking spray into measuring cup for adding corn syrup! It slides right out! Also, line measuring cup for peanut butter with plastic wrap and there is no mess!



I have been making this recipe for years. It is extremely sweet! I only gave it 4 stars because my recipe differs just a bit. I use 1-1/2 cups peanut butter which makes it far less hard. For the topping, 2 cups chocolate chips and 2 cups butterscotch chips (doubling this recipe). Makes a nice thick topping! Make sure you use a double boiler for melting as the butterscotch chips just don't melt very well in the microwave. Very good but try my version!



Exactly what I was looking for!! Be careful not to cook the syrup & sugar any longer than just reaching a rollign boil though -- they get HARD if yo ulet it boil too long. I had walked away to answer the phone and the first batch I made were like ROCKS!!
