I'm getting fat.

And it's all thanks to Special K Cookies. These are my favorite holiday treat. I love them more than anything...well, almost more than anything ;)

And, because fatness, er misery, enjoys company...I'm giving the recipe to YOU!

Special K Cookies

6 C. Special K cereal
1 C. corn syrup
1 C. sugar
1 1/2 C. Peanut butter
2 bags butterscotch chips
1 bag chocolate chips

In a large saucepan bring the corn syrup and sugar to a boil. Add peanut butter and melt it. Add the cereal and incorporate into peanut butter mix. Press into a buttered jelly roll pan (you know, those big silver ones?).
In a double boiler, or in the microwave, melt chocolate and butterscotch chips. When completely melted, spread over top of bars.
Let cool and harden at room temperature. If you put them outside, the chocolate will cool too quickly and will separate from the bars, just ask my sister ;)
When it is hard, cut it up and EAT!!! Get fat with me, will you??

Yeah, I was going to have pictures of these, but they didn't last long enough. Sorry!

Hey I LOVE THESE!!! We call them Scotch-a-roos...and use rice crispies. SO they basically are like rice crispie treats. But I think the special K sounds yummy too! I might just have to add special K to my list for the grocery!! Thanks for making me fat as well...hehe

But Special K is supposed to be HEALTHY, right? ;) And I guess that means you'll have to make another. hehe
