By now you probably know that when it comes to cooking, I love easy! This recipe was one of my husband’s favorite back when he was a freshman in college. He had a friend whose mom would send these to him in a care package. I finally asked her for the recipe about 15 years ago. Butterscotch Cereal Cookies (Special K cookies) have been a favorite in our house ever since.
Butterscotch Cereal Cookies
1/2 cup Peanut Butter (creamy or crunchy)
6 oz pkg Butterscotch Chips
3 cups Corn Flakes or Special K cereal
- Melt and mix peanut butter and butterscotch
- Add to dry cereal
- Spoon out onto wax paper or in flat bowl
- Refrigerate for about 15 minutes or longer till the mix has hardened
- Break into pieces
- Eat or save till later
You don’t get much easier than this. I usually double the peanut butter and use a full pack of butterscotch chips so my whole family can enjoy it longer.
There are many variations to this recipe. Here is a cook who uses corn syrup and chocolate chips to make Special K No Bake Cookies.
Do you make Butterscotch Cereal Cookies? Have you ever made these?
Do you have a Kitchen Cabinet Recipe you want to share? I’d love to hear!
