Chocolate Butterscotch Cereal Bars

I made these laste last night for a BBQ with my neighbors. It went over big! No one knew how easy it was...I decided to cut it before I brought it. Good thing as it was rock hard from being in the fridge. I left it out and by the time we got to dessert it was PERFECT! So quick, easy and tastes so good.

Yummy bake sale dessert

This always disappears quickly whenever I have taken it to a bake sale! We love it at home, too. It's also easy to make!

This is the best variation on Rice Krispy Bars that I've ever found and I've made it several times now, each with fantastic results! I particularly love the texture and taste of the chocolate/butterscotch topping! This is definitely a keeper! Delicious!
