Cookie Friday: Butterscotch Krispies

I know these are nothing new (but, if you haven't managed to try these yet.  Be warned.  They are deliciously evil.  I may or may not have eaten an entire pan of these by myself.  On more than one occasion).  And technically, they're not even cookies.  But.  Kehlton asked to make these for Cookie Friday and there was no changing his mind.   Who I am try get in his way?

These are quick and simple to make.  And once you buy the ingredients to make one batch, you actually have enough to make two batches.  So when the first pan disappears too quickly, you have back up waiting.

You will need:

1 c. light corn syrup
1 c. sugar
1 c. peanut butter (chunky or creamy)
6-7 c. rice krispies cereal
1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. butterscotch chips

Combine sugar and syrup in large saucepan.  Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture just begins to boil.  Remove from heat.  Stir in peanut butter and mix well.  Add rice krispies and stir until blended.  Press mixture into buttered 9x13 pan.

Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together.  Stir until blended.  Spread evenly over rice krispie mixture.  Cool and then cut into bars.

A couple of notes?  I never put 6 cups of cereal in these just because I prefer them to be much gooier.  I usually only do 4-5 cups.  Also?  I never wait for them to cool.  In our house, the pan is usually half gone before they've cooled completely. They are equally delicious warm or cool.

True story - this recipe may have played a large part in how I landed my hubby. :) I made these for a tailgate party prior to us dating, and he still requests them today (been married 7 years now.) FYI, we call them "Scotcheroos"
