I used to watch my grandmother make these around Christmas time as a little girl. She always set some aside for me because she knew they were my favorite! As I grew older, I began to help her make them. Now that I am a parent, I have carried on my grandmother’s tradition by making them for my family at Christmas.
You will love these – I promise! They are delicious, and extremely quick and easy to make. But prepare yourself.. they are addictive. Try not to let your family eat all of them in one day.
- 6 c Rice Krispies cereal
- 1 c creamy peanut butter
- 12 oz pkg butterscotch chips
- Add cereal to a large mixing bowl; set aside.
- In a large saucepan over medium heat, add peanut butter and stir for 30 seconds. Add butterscotch chips and stir constantly until chips have melted.
- Pour butterscotch mixture over cereal and gently stir with wooden spoon until combined. Let cool for a few minutes then drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Cool until set and enjoy!
Yes, I know – this recipe is not healthy. But they are too delicious not to share. 🙂 You can thank me later.
You may also make these into Rice Krispie treats by adding to a 9×13 buttered dish.
