Steps

Hide Images
  • 1
    In large bowl, mix cereal, peanuts and marshmallows.
  • 2
    In medium microwavable bowl, microwave butterscotch chips and peanut butter uncovered on Medium to Medium-High (50 to 75%) in 1-minute increments, stirring after each minute, just until mixture is smooth and melted. This should take 3 to 4 minutes.
  • 3
    Pour over cereal mixture, using large wooden spoon to mix until cereal mixture is thoroughly coated. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed or cooking parchment paper.
  • 4
    Let stand 15 to 20 minutes to set.

Expert Tips

  • You may use any variety of Chex™ cereal.
  • For best results, avoid using a "natural-style" peanut butter.
  • Do not overheat the butterscotch-peanut butter mixture, or else it will scorch and be ruined. Microwave it just long enough to melt the chips.
