Day 29: O'Henrys
Here's another one of my favorite treats to make around this time of year. I don't know if it's the peanuts, the chocolate, or the butterscotch that make these pure perfection, but whatever it is, it works!
1 c. Karo syrup
1 c. sugar
1 c. unsalted peanuts (whether you chop them or not is up to you)
1 c. peanut butter
3 c. Rice Krispies
12 oz. (1 pkg.) semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
12 oz. (1 pkg.) butterscotch chips
Stir together Karo syrup and sugar. Microwave for 2 minutes. Add peanuts and peanut butter to the Karo mixture. Microwave everything for another minute. Combine with the 3 cups of Rice Krispies. Spread into a greased 9 x 13 pan.
Combine chocolate chips (on bottom--this DOES matter) and butterscotch chips in a bowl and microwave for 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Spread over krispie mixture and cool in the refrigerator.
Remove from pan and cut into squares.
Try to eat only one. :) Enjoy!
