A great, simple recipe that took me back to my youth. Yeah, they are sweet, but the salted natural peanut butter helps cut the sweetness. I appreciate that it doesn’t call for marshmallows so I can substitute Lyles Golden Syrup or honey.

Used natural, unsalted PB, added 1/4 tsp of sea salt, guittard butterscotch chips, which do not contain hydrogenated oils or anything untoward in terms of ingredients and doubled the chips. Incredible.

I loved the idea of these but they were way too sweet for me (and all but the youngest in my family). If you like super sweet desserts go for it!

Man, I commented earlier - my Mom used to make these all the time when I was young so it really hit the nostalgia meter. But when I made them as an adult, I just couldn't get past the 'butterscotch' chips. It's all I smelled and it was too artificial tasting.

I made these for our family last weekend. They are way too sweet and way too good and chewy! I used 1/2 honey and 1/2 corn syrup and they turned out great. Both invert sugars. May try all honey next time. They're gone!

These turned out so hard I feared I would break my teeth.

Barely bring the sugar mix to a boil. If cooked too long, the result is hard as rock krisies

This also happened to me while making regular Rice Krispie Treats. I later found out, after making another batch, that I had pressed too firmly on the Rice Krispies when I put them in the 13x9 dish. Oops!
