Special K Bars (Scotcheroos)

4.5 from 2 reviews

A delicious peanut butter & chocolate dessert with a Special K cereal base.  Easy to make and a no-bake recipe.   If you like peanut butter with chocolate, you'll love these!


  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Peanut butter
  • 6 cups Special K cereal
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. In a large saucepan, add corn syrup. Add sugar. Bring to a gentle boil and stir for about a minute.
  2. Add the peanut butter. Stir until well combined and take off heat
  3. Add peanut butter mixture onto 6 cups cereal in a large bowl.
  4. Stir gently until cereal is evenly coated.
  5. Press into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish (best .
  6. (I love using the gloves I bought at restaurant supply store. Not only do they keep your hands clean, you don't burn your fingers as easily with hot ingredients - baggies work too!)
  7. Gently heat both the butterscotch and chocolate chips until melted. You should use a double boiler. I just use a heavy saucepan and low heat but I watch it very carefully and constantly stir.   Don't overheat or the chocolate changes  texture and isn't smooth.
  8. Once the chips are melted, pour over the cereal mixture and spread evenly.  It's a fairly thin layer and that's all you need!
  9. Place in refrigerator to cool - about an hour.
  10. Cut into small squares (or large ones if you are feeding teens 🙂 ).


Easy peanut butter and chocolate no-bake recipe.
