crispy-cereal-treatsI’ll bet you can’t eat just one of these delicious butterscotch, peanut butter and chocolate flavored treats!

1 (10 to 11 oz) package butterscotch chips
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 cups crisp rice cereal
2 cups (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter or margarine, cubed
2 tablespoons water
3/4 cup confectioner’s sugar

1. In a large microwaveable bowl, combine butterscotch chips, peanut butter and vanilla. Cook on High until chips are completely melted; stir until mixture is smooth.

2. Gradually stir in the cereal until well coated. Press 1/2 the mixture into a greased 13×9-inch pan; set aside the remaining mixture.

3. In a separate large microwaveable bowl, melt the chocolate chips and butter; stir in the water until well blended. Add the confectioner’s sugar a little at a time, stirring after each addition, until mixture is smooth. Spread mixture over the cereal layer in pan.

4. Cover and refrigerate until the chocolate layer is set, about 10 minutes. Spread the remaining cereal mixture over the top; chill before cutting. Makes 24 cereal bars.
