Directions

  1. Melt the morsels and peanut butter together in a glass bowl in the microwave in 30 second increments. Stir between each melting. Once melted, the mixture should be creamy with just a few little butterscotch lumps. Don't be tempted to melt for a longer period of time. This mixture will burn in the middle very easily.
  2. Pour the Rice Krispies in a large bowl and then pour the melted peanut butter mixture on top. Use a large spoon and slowly fold the melted mixture into the Rice Krispies until all are coated.
  3. Pour the entire bowl of mixture into a large 9x11 pan (smaller if you wish to have thicker treats) and cover with wax paper. Take a flat bottom glass and press on the wax paper covered mixture until it is flat and even in the pan.
  4. Set this aside for an hour or so for the mixture to cool and set. Then cut into squares and enjoy!
