About a week ago, I put a photo up on Instagram of the most amazing grown-up version of rice crispy treats (made by none other than the gentleman himself!). I got a few requests for the recipe so here it is! Sorry for the iPhone photo, but I hope it will do!
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter (creamy)
6 cups Cocoa Krispies or regular Krispies (we use cocoa)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
Place corn syrup and sugar into a 3 quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil.
Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter. Mix well. Add krispies and stir until well coated. Press mixture into cupcake or miniature cupcake. Set aside.
Note: I’ve had both regular and mini size, and the mini size treats are BY FAR more delicious. They are super rich, so it is the perfect size.
Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Spread a dollop on top of each of the treats, and let stand until firm.
