Special K Bars

Happy 100th post. Wow, is there a club I am in now? No? Darn it! Well where I live woman around here and the grocery store deli department make these things called K-Bars. Except they make them with rice krispies. I used to eat these for breakfast when my mom drove us to school and we would stop at the gas station. Healthy I know. I just thought of them as peanut butter rice krispy bars with chocolate on top. Who cares what they are called right? Obviously my recipe makes sense why they are called K-bars so wouldn't their's be R-Bars? I will stop. Here is the recipe...I know there is another name for these maybe something like clark bar? Or am I crazy???

Special K Bars

1 c. sugar
1 c. corn syrup
1 c. peanut butter
1/2 pkg chocolate chips (6oz.)
1/2 pkg butterscotch chips (6oz.)
7 c. Special K cereal

Heat and stir sugar and corn syrup in a pan. When it comes to a boil, add peanut butter and stir until creamy. Pour mixture over the cereal and coat evenly with mixture. Press into a prepared 9x13 pan. Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together and spread on for frosting.

Enjoy! I am planning on making these for Kurt this weekend along with his favorite cookies. If anyone has a recipe for taco seasoning, I am looking for one that I can make up and have on hand. I have not checked yet but I am sure there are a few out there. Go check out the Recipe Swap for more yummy recipes!

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
