chewy No Bake peanut butter Special K bars with creamy milk chocolate butterscotch frosting

These delicious little treats (known simply as Special K bars) are sadly neglected because of their uncommonness and their simple name.

After making them twice this week, I realized they needed a bit more descriptive name and another chance to shine, so I am re-sharing them with you today!

These are seriously one of the most scrumptious, rich, satisfying, delightful and easy little treats you will ever make.

And unfortunately, unless you live or have spent time in the midwest, there’s a good chance you’ve never heard of them!

I really hope you will give them a try.  Please…  do it for me!

They are amazing.  That’s just all there is to it!  

Special K Bars Recipe
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
6 cups Special K cereal
2 cups butterscotch chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
Lightly grease a 9×13″ pan.
Bring the sugar and syrup to a boil in a medium pot over medium high heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the peanut butter & vanilla until smooth, and then the cereal to coat.

Press the mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish and let cool before frosting.

For the frosting, carefully melt together the butterscotch and milk chocolate chips, stirring well until smooth, and spred over the bars.

 Leave at room temperature until set, cut into small bars (these are VERY rich!) and serve!
