Every holiday season there are a few desserts I look forward to. Andes Mint cookies, magic cookie bars, and these Special K bars (also known as Scotcheroos). Special K bars are soooo delicious and addicting and are ridiculously easy to make!
With just a few ingredients and a few minutes you can make this delightful dessert too! My mom made these every Christmas growing up, and now I make them every year too.
I’m still not quite sure why we just enjoyed them at Christmas time, since they are perfect for eating year round. The combination of peanut butter, butterscotch, and chocolate in these Special K bars just might be dessert perfection!
Thank you Duraflame for sponsoring this Special K Bars recipe post. All ideas and opinions are always 100% my own.
Special K Bars
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup corn syrup
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 6 cups Special K Cereal
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
Step 1. Combine the sugar and corn syrup together in a pot. Stir until the mixture boils, then remove from heat.
Step 2. Stir in the peanut butter, then the Special K cereal. Mix thoroughly.
Step 3. Pour the mixture into a 9×13 pan, then press down on the mixture.
Step 4. Melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips together on low heat in a small pan.
Pour onto the cereal bars and smooth with a knife.
Place bars in the refrigerator to cool, then cut into bars.
Enjoy! These Special K bars are so very delicious and very rich and are absolutely irresistible.
My favorite way to eat them is with an ice cold glass of milk. Yummmmm….
During December I love relaxing in our living room with the twinkling Christmas lights, a crackling fire, and these Special K bars. Such a wonderful and festive combination!
I use Duraflame firelogs to create our cozy Christmas fires because they are so quick to light and easy to use. The 6 lb. firelogs, shown above, are perfect for the holiday season because they create full flames in less than five minutes and create beautiful flames that last up to four hours.
They also burn 80% cleaner than wood, which means that my home, clothing, and hair don’t smell like smoke after we have a fire in our fireplace. It’s also America’s #1 selling firelog, so you know you’re making a good choice!
I remember my dad buying Duraflame logs when I was younger to start our holiday fires. It’s just not Christmas time for me without many cozy nights spent cuddling by the fire.
