This is a variation of the chow mein clusters that you often see around Christmas time! It's easy to do with the cereal you have in your cupboard; in fact, that's how I invented the recipe! The Rice Krispies® make it reminiscent of a Nestle® Crunch bar.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Set up a double-boiler over low heat. Put baking sheets into freezer to cool them.

  • Combine 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1 1/2 cup butterscotch chips in the double-boiler and mix continuously until nearly melted, about 10 minutes. Add 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup butterscotch chips; continue to cook and stir until the chips are completely melted, about 10 minutes more. Fold rice cereal and salted peanuts into the melted chip mixture.

  • Remove baking sheets from freezer and cover each with a sheet of waxed paper. Remove chocolate mixture from heat and drop spoonfuls of it onto the waxed paper. Heap the cookies into tidy piles for visual appeal.

  • Put filled baking sheets into the fridge until the chocolate hardens, 15 to 20 minutes.

Was very good and very easy. I left out the butterscotch chips as i was afraid it would be to sweet. Was very good and sweet enough without them but imagine its great either way. Nice and easy when the sweet tooth hits! Read More

Wow! Definitely satisfied my craving for the chocolate/butterscotch combo! It's a little on the sweet side so next time I may add more peanuts and/or Krispies. I did not have a double boiler so I just melted the chips in a saucepan over low heat constantly stirring with a wooden spoon. Worked great! Read More
