One of my favorite desserts…

I have always had a love affair with Special K bars but never knew how to make them until I ate them one night while visiting a girlfriend at school in Milwaukee.  Her roommate had made some and I seriously could NOT get enough!!

This is also the ONLY dessert I make that the hubs eats (aside from my cupcake cookies but that’s another story!).  Normally, I’ll make cupcakes or cookies or other bars and he doesn’t even though them! #hesnotasweetsguy #savoryonlyforhim

So I love to make these because we both enjoy them and I love to make things that we both can eat!  Check below for the recipe if you love these little bad boys too!

Special K Bars


1 cup sugar

1 cup light corn syrup

1 1/2 cups peanut butter

6 cups Special K cereal

1 cup chocolate chips

1 cup butterscotch chips


Pour Special K into a large bowl. Put aside.

Mix sugar and corn syrup in a large saucepan.  Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it comes to a boil. Remove from heat.

Add peanut butter to mixture and stir until melted.  Pour mixture over cereal until fully coated.  Pour into an ungreased 13×9 baking pan and pat down evenly.

Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together over a double boiler over simmering water (you can microwave if easier- i’m just always afraid to burn them!).  Stir continuously until melted.

Pour over cereal mixture in pan and spread evenly.

Let bars cool (either on the counter or if you’re too anxious to eat one, in the fridge for 10 minutes!).  Cut and enjoy! 🙂
