Butterscotch Rice Krispies

Another installment of Cakes & Bakes? Yes, I couldn’t help myself. Stress baking is a real thing. Besides, everybody loves Rice Krispie treats. This was one my favorites as a kid and I thought you might like this recipe, too. Butterscotch tastes like peanut butter and caramel had a baby. It adds a bit of spark if you’re tired of plain cereal treats. If you don’t like butterscotch, I highly recommend replacing them with peanut butter chips. Either way, you’ll have a definite hit on your hands. These Rice Krispie treats are not too hard and not too soft, they are a yummy combination of crispy and gooey. You can mold them into shapes or top with chocolate. The possibilities are endless. They are a delicious throwback and a super-quick, cheap treat. Enjoy!
