Holiday Cookie Recipe

Today the Four Moms are sharing holiday cookie recipes. This is the time of year for baking lots of yummy food!

The recipe I am sharing is actually for bars, not cookies, but they are so delicious. I only make these during the holiday season--Thanksgiving and Christmas. I made a batch for Thanksgiving, and they were gone in one day! I have also packaged these in tins or cups and given them as gifts.

Enjoy the recipe, and then visit all four moms' blogs for lots of holiday cookie recipes.

Rice Krispie Goodies

6 cups rice krispie cereal
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 bag butterscotch chips
1 bag chocolate chips

Cook corn syrup and sugar in small saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter. Pour this mixture over the rice krispies in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Press mixture into a 9 x 13 dish. Melt both bags of chips in microwave in 1 minute intervals, stirring each time. When the chips are melted and combined, spread over the rice krispie mixture. Allow the goodies to cool and the chips to harden before cutting into squares. Cut into small squares. These are very rich!

I usually double the rice krispies, corn syrup, sugar, and peanut butter and make two batches. I do not double the bags of chips--it really makes enough to spread onto two pans of goodies.
