Kris Kringles

This is a staple at Brew Family gatherings, especially at Christmas.  A batch disappears quickly, so be warned! Mom got this recipe from a Relief Society sister in the old Falls Church Ward in Virginia--Emily Packer.

1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups Rice Krispies
6-oz. pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
6-oz. pkg butterscotch morsels
Candy sprinkles

1.  Stir sugar and syrup together in a large pot. Heat until mixture just begins to boil around the edges (30 seconds to a minute).  Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter.

2.  Add cereal to peanut butter mixture and stir until well-blended.  Press into a 9x13 pan or dish.

3.  Melt chocolate and butterscotch in the microwave according to package directions. Stir until smooth. Spread over cereal mixture using the back of a spoon. Decorate with sprinkles.

4.  Chill until firm.  Cut into bars.  MAKES 4 DOZEN.

  1. You know, I have seen copycats of this lately, but they aren't made quite the same. Nothing beats a Brew Family Kris Kringle!!!!

  2. These are sooo yummy! I have a similar recipe called "scotcharoos" but they don't have the sprinkles...and sprinkles make EVERYTHING better. =) Nothing like a good family recipe!
