Crunchy Rice Krispie Sandwiches
This delicious little treat was shared with me recently, by my friend Glenda, who got it from a mutual friend of ours who passed away many years ago, Evelyn Newcomb.These were also known as "Brian cookies" because Evelyn used to make them every Sunday for her son Brian. She loved having all of her kids home for Sunday dinner.
They are crispy, sweet with a little change of pace from the ordinary rice Krispie treat.
You will need:
1 (12 0z.) bag butterscotch chips
1 cup peanut butter
9-10 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 (12 oz.)pkg. chocolate chips
2 T. water
1/2 stick butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
Melt butterscotch chips and peanut butter in microwave. Then add cereal. Mix well. Grease a 9x13" pan. Put 1/2 the cereal mixture in it.
Melt chocolate chips, water, butter in microwave (1-1/2 minutes). Add powdered sugar to choco mix. Pour over cereal mix in pan. Add rest of cereal mix on top of chocolate. Press down gently. Refrigerate 3-4 hours before cutting into squares.
