Butterscotch Chocolate Krispie Bars Recipe - Gluten Free

I would like to warn you first: These bars have enough sugar to induce a coma.

But, they're really, really good!!

So just in case you want to make a treat that almost everyone will love, I'm posting this super-simple recipe.  In fact, I cringe when I see someone actually purchase Krispie bars at the convenience store. ICK.  Do they not know how simple it is to make these?? Besides, those look dry and disgusting. These are moist and gooey and delicious. So if you're going to eat something with no redeeming nutritional value whatsoever, at least please don't buy it. Make it yourself. In fact, with a little supervision, your kids could make them.

Butterscotch Chocolate Krispie Bar Recipe - Gluten Free

1 c. Light corn syrup
1 c. Sugar
1 c. Peanut butter (I used extra-chunky for these)
6 oz. Semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 oz. Butterscotch chips
6 c. Krispies, any type of Rice Krispies gluten free cereal

Pour the Krispies into a large stainless steel bowl. Set aside.

Melt chocolate chips and butterscotch chips either in a double boiler or in the microwave. Be careful if you use the microwave. Chips have been known to start smoking when not closely attended. How do I know this? Hmmmm.

In a heavy saucepan, mix corn syrup and sugar. Bring to a slow boil. Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter until it's well mixed in.

Pour the corn syrup, sugar, and peanut butter mixture over the Krispies and stir until it's mixed throughout.

Press Krispie mixture into a greased (It's not enough that we're killing you with sugar, so let's make sure there's enough fat in here too!) 9 x 13 cakepan.

Spread melted chocolate chip and butterscotch mixture over the top of the Krispies in the pan.

Set in the refrigerator to set the chocolate. In a couple hours it should be set, then you can cut them and serve.

And no, I still don't have that new camera.
Take pity on me.

Wow, looks so yummy.

Debra Hawkins said...

I think I may have gained five pounds just looking at this picture.:)

Yenta Mary said...

Oh, my word! And I've been craving sweets, too. Good thing I don't have most of the ingredients, though it'd be an easy drive to get them ... or I could walk to the store, and justify the calories!!! You're right - there is no reason to buy chemical-laden dry treats, when these are fresh and fabulous, provide entertainment for the kiddies, and make the kitchen smell so wonderful, too!

I agree weight gain just looking at those, but love them. If I walk to the store and back wonder if that would be enough to eat 1/2 batch by myself?

Ruth Kelly said...

Those bars looks so scrumptious. I am just salivating.

Candace said...

I'm pretty sure that I don't even want to know the points value of these cookies; but you know what? I'm pretty sure that with a plate of these in front me, I would completely not care. These look absolutely amazing, Judy. Yum!
