  • cups (300g) granulated sugar
  • cups corn syrup
  • cups peanut butter
  • 6 cups Kellogg's Special K cereal, original
  • 6 ounces milk chocolate chips
  • 6 ounces butterscotch chips


  1. Prepare a 9x13-inch baking dish by lining it with parchment paper. Measure the cereal in a large bowl and set aside.

  2. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat until boiling.

  3. Stir in the peanut butter until smooth.

  4. Remove from heat. Pour the mixture over the bowl of cereal and fold in the cereal to coat.

  5. Pat the cereal mixture into the lined baking dish using an oiled spatula.

  6. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, add the milk chocolate and butterscotch chips. Heat the chips in 20-second intervals until they have melted and the mixture is smooth with no lumps.

  7. Pour the melted chocolate and butterscotch chips over the bars, smoothing with a knife.

  8. Let the bars sit for about 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
