Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: about 30
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1½ cups creamy peanut butter
  • 6 cups Chex cereal
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  1. Stir together the corn syrup and sugar in a small pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar is dissolved and mixture begins to boil.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in the 1.5 cups of peanut butter until combined.
  3. Pour this mixture over your 6 cups of Chex cereal and fold together until cereal is fully coated.
  4. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper or silicone baking mat.
  5. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt together the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, ¼ cup of peanut butter and vanilla at 50% power, stirring every 20-30 seconds so chocolate does not burn.
  6. Once fully melted, spoon the mixture over the cookies. Allow to cool completely and chocolate to harden at room temperature before eating.
