ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup creamy cookie butter
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 cups rice krispies cereal
  • 11.5 ounces butterscotch chips 1 bag
  • 11.5 ounces dark chocolate chips 1 bag
  • 2 cups Leftover Halloween candy, unwrapped

instructions

  1. Before cooking, cover a 9 in pan with parchment paper (leaving a overhang so you can remove easily later).
  2. In a large saucepan, cook sugar, cookie butter, and corn syrup on medium heat until mixture begins to boil (stirring constantly). Once it begins to boil, remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Quickly add in rice krispies cereal and stir until evenly coated.
  3. Pour mixture into prepared pan and use the back of a spatula to firmly press down the mixture along all sides of the pan until smooth. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile in a glass bowl, melt dark chocolate chips and butterscotch chips together in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Once melted, pour over rice krispy bars and use a spatula to cover all the edges.
  5. Top with leftover Halloween candy and refrigerate entire pan to allow the chocolate to set.
  6. Once set, carefully lift the bars out of the pan using the foil overhang and gently peel back parchment from the sides. Cut bars with a sharp knife and store in airtight container.

Sweet Find

We used to hate it when we’d ask our mom what we were having for dinner and she would reply, “Whatever you can find.” We renamed this dinner WYCF. And wouldn’t you know it -we still have it, but this time were the moms saying it! We’re applying this approach to our treat this week, except there’s no dislike involved. Our baking kitchens are full of all kinds of goodies and nothing is off limits. We’re loving every bite of our WYCF Brownie Parfaits!

Directions:

Bake 1 box of brownies according to directions on the back of the box. Once cool slice into bite size squares.

Layer baked brownies with your favorite toppings in a jar and eat up! Yum!
