  • 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


  • Prepare a 9x13-inch baking dish by lining it with parchment paper. Measure the cereal in a large bowl and set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, combine the sugar and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat until boiling.
  • Stir in the peanut butter until smooth.
  • Remove from heat. Pour the mixture over the bowl of cereal and fold in the cereal to coat.
  • Pat the cereal mixture into the lined baking dish using an oiled spatula.
  • 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.
  • Pour the melted chocolate and butterscotch chips over the bars, smoothing with a knife.
  • Let the bars sit for about 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
