Great Grandma's Rice Krispie Treats.

When it comes to this recipe I'm sure you have done one of the following:
  1. Made these.
  2. Ate these.
  3. Made and ate them.

That being the case I must mention that these treats are a family favorite.  I know these were present at every family gathering when my Great Grandmother was alive and I'm pretty sure they have been present at every family gathering since she passed away.  

When Great Grandma made them they always came delivered wrapped in white paper.  (And if it wasn't these underneath the paper it was sweetrolls!).  Nowadays they usually come in a 9x13 pyrex baking dish although I recently starting using a 11.5x17.25 cookie sheet.  You get a thicker bar and more topping when using the 9x13 dish, but I almost prefer a little thiner bar and a tad less topping achieved with the cookie sheet.  Either one will give you a tasty treat that comes together in no time at all.

Great Grandma's Rice Krispie Treats
(Recipe from my Great Grandma Agnes)
1 cup sugar
1 cup light karol syrup
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups rice krispie cereal
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 bag butterscotch chips

Combine the sugar, syrup, and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl.  Heat for 1 minute and then stir.  Repeat 1-2 times until well combined and melted together.  Combine with rice krispie cereal.  Stirring until all the cereal is coated.  Press into the bottom of desired pan.  Melt the chips and spread evenly over the top.  Allow chocolate/butterscotch topping to harden and serve.

Simple.  Easy.  Fast.  And these are usually the first to go!
