I adore this easy version of peanut butter bars. I will whip these up if I have a serious peanut butter craving. If I don't have butterscotch chips on hand I will simply do all chocolate.
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup sugar
Combine the syrup and sugar in a 3-qrt saucepan. Stir well. Heat mixture on stove on low to medium eat. Stir constantly until the sugar is dissolved, but do not let mixture boil. Take off heat.
Stir in 1 cup extra chunky peanut butter. Stir together until well mixed.
Add 6 cups Crispy Rice cereal, one cup at a time. Stir well after each addition. Lightly butter or spray with cooking spray 13x9" pan. Pour cookie mixture into pan and spread evenly.
Add 1 cup milk chocolate chips and 1 cup butterscotch chips to a small saucepan. Melt on very low heat while stirring constantly. Pour chocolate mixture over cookie mixture and spread evenly. You can add M&Ms to decorate. Let cool until chocolate mixture hardens (can refrigerate to speed up cooling.) Cut into squares and eat!
