crispy rice cereal
There is nothing wrong with this recipe!First of all..of course it is sweet! Look at the ingredients..butterscotch and peanut butter make one of the sweetest combinations known to mankind! This is not an everyday snack-it is a treat. The easist no fail way to prepare is put it the chips, butter and peanut butter all in the same bowl and microwave it for 1 min...then stir until all the chips have melted. Your butter and peanut butter wont seperate and it will turn out great!
I made this recipe for a potluck at work and I found that you need a LOT more than 2 cups rice crispies. I put 4 cups, and that worked. I also put the butterscotch chips, the butter (*note - I used I can't believe it's not butter and it turned out good) and the peanut butter all in a bowl in the microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Worked great. I think with these alterations this is a great recipe to make for that special relative with the sweet tooth!
We tried it (my wife and I), then gave some to my inlaws, then brought the remainder to work. . .overall its just too much. . .so much so that it's actually disgusting.
Great recipe! I have been looking for this for a few years- they are very sweet, and ADDICTIVE. I first used 5 cups of cereal and that was a little too much- I just made them again and used 4 cups this time and they are PERFECT!
I made this last Halloween and have had several requests/expectations that it will be at our party this year. The one thing I did last year to help it stick all together better was melt some semi-sweet choc. chips and drizzle and spead it over the top. It added a wonderful something extra. So, so rich and yummy. If you like butterscotch, you'll love these!
Do NOT melt the marshmallows, folks!! They are supposed to be all colorful and yummy. The butter, peanut butter, and chips are melted. Then you add the marshmallows and cereal. They are meant to be whole and delicious. I've also had this many times w/o the cereal. It is a fun treat. Just do not make them like rice krispie bars -- the submitter did not mean for them to be melted -- see the description in step 2. Look at the pic for Rocky Road drops by adellois and you'll better be able to picture what this is like!
Now, yes, you can get crazy creative and add many things to the colored marshmallows-- like different cereals, M&Ms, choco mini chips, some white choco chips.... This treat is a classic. Maybe some of you need to see some other pictures to see how this is to look. It cuts through lovely and is fun to have all of the colors showing from the marshmallows! We always have made it in a buttered 9x13 (w/o rice cereal, 9x9) dish, and cooled it to get it to set. Enjoy!!
I melted the butter & peanut butter together in a large pot on the stove top over low heat then I added the butterscotch chips and stirred them until melted. Next I added the marshmallows stirring until melted and finally I mixed in 4 cups of Rice Krispies and then transferred everything to the 9x13 pan to set.
I tried this recipe and it turned out hard as a rock. Almost like peanut brittle. Followed the directions to a tee. May try one more time later.
