Sorry Lynn....this one sure isn't low cal, but is a comfort food from my childhood. One of my mom's aunts always brought these to family gatherings and though other people made them, they never tasted quite as good as Aunt Olga's. One day I was at her house as she made a batch. She shared her secret with me...instead of the normal corn syrup that the recipe called for, she used maple syrup. I also watched her load up her hands with butter as she pressed the sticky cereal mix down into a pan-she really packed them tight and pushed the butter in as she did so! YUMMMY!
Aunt Olga Bars
c white sugar, c *maple syrup 3/4c creamy peanut butter 3-4c Rice Krispies 2/3c each chocolate and butterscotch chips.
Bring sugar and syrup to boil in med pan over med heat stirring constantly. Remove from heat & stir in PB until smooth. Pour over cereal; stir to coat well. Press into 9x13 pan that has been buttered (Use 11x7 for thicker bars). Sprinkle chips evenly over top and heat under broiler til able to spread.
