Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Cookies

First let me say these are a bar not a cookie, but if you want a quick to make treat that doesn't require you  putting the oven on in this heat this is the way to go.

Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Cookies

1  Cup corn syrup (for other countries I am guessing golden syrup)
1 Cup Sugar (white)
1 Cup Peanut Butter, either smooth or crunchy
6 Cups Rice Krispies
6 oz chocolate chips
6 oz butterscotch chips ( I subbed chocolate for the butterscotch)

In a large pot cook corn syrup and sugar until mixture comes to a boil, stirring frequently.  Remove from heat and add peanut butter.  (OR if you're me, put first three ingredients in a pot and bring to boil)

Stir well and then mix in Rice Krispies.  Press into a buttered 9" x 13" pan.

Melt chocolate chips, in my case I use a double boiler, then spread melted chips over cereal mixture.

Pop in refrigerator for 15 minutes and then cut and eat!!!

As I said before it's a bar not a cookie.  If you like peanut butter and chocolate this is for you.  Not as chewy as a regular rice krispie bar, but really good and sweet.  I also only had 4 cups of rice krispies, so I reduced all the ingredients to accommodate that and put my bars in an 8" x 8" pan.

Thanks for your comment re Zentangle. I had never heard of it before either, seen it on the web though.
I had nothing to do on Sunday, so though it would be nice to spend two hours at a winery. LOL
I did really enjoy doing this, another time waster.
Could not access your last post re police.
