Guest; Ben Cox

1 regular jar of Peanut Butter (usually about 16 oz.) – can be creamy or crunchy peanut butter

1 regular bag of butterscotch morsels

optional – 1 regular bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 box of crunchy cereal of your choice (Chex, Crispix, Rice Krispies are preferred)

1 large saucepan, 1 large mixing bowl, spatula, and 1 large pizza pan or cookie sheet


Place peanut butter and morsels into 1 large saucepan and put on the stove top on low heat. Mix until melted with little to no lumps. Make sure it is low heat. Butterscotch will burn and stick to the pan easily.

In one large mixing bowl, combine butterscotch mixture and cereal. Mix thoroughly.

Spread cereal-butterscotch mixture on a large pizza pan or cookie sheet until flat and even. Place into the refrigerator for 1 hour to harden. Either break off pieces from the hardened crunchies or cut into slices and enjoy.
