Rice Krispie Squares

Bring to a boil:
1 cup Karo syrup
1 cup sugar

Add 1 cup peanut butter and stir until dissolved.

Pour over 6 cups Rice Krispies in a buttered bowl and mix thoroughly.

Pour into 13 x 9″ buttered pan and spread out.

Melt and frost with:
1 cup butterscotch chips (1/2 12 ounce package)
1 cup chocolate chips

Note: Butter the bowl and pan while waiting for the Karo and sugar to boil. Measure the Rice Krispies and peanut butter. Once the mixture boils, work quickly. It hardens as it cools.
