Crunchy Rice Krispie Sandwiches
This yummy little treat was shared with me 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. She was a great lady who influenced many. I love that I have a recipe to make and share in her memory.
These are crispy and sweet, and 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 the 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 the chocolate mix. Pour over cereal; mix in pan. Add the rest of cereal mix on top of chocolate. Press down gently. Refrigerate 3-4 hours before cutting into squares.
Thank you, Glenda, and Evelyn, for this one!
