The 12 Blogs of Christmas: Day 8
You Mean You Forgot Butterscotch Too?
Christmas was quickly approaching, and Mr. and Mrs. Kringle realized their tray of desserts was looking quite sparse for their upcoming Christmas Eve party. Mr. Kringle decided to head out to pick up supplies for the family favorite, butterscotch peanut butter krispie cookies.
There were just three ingredients needed for the cookies: rice krispie cereal, creamy peanut butter, and butterscotch morsels. For two of the items on his list, Mr. Kringle even had coupons! Yet, as he browsed through the baking goods aisle, Mr. Kringle experienced an increasing sense of anxiety when he realized he could not locate the butterscotch morsels.
Three stores later, and still no luck.
The only place he could find them was on Amazon. Thankfully, the two-day shipping meant they’d still arrive before Christmas.
Maybe your local grocery store will still have supplies in stock! Here’s the recipe for the Christmas peanut butter butterscotch rice krispie cookies. Just be warned: these are extremely addictive!
Peanut Butter Butterscotch Rice Krispie Cookies
1 C Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter
1 – 11oz. bag butterscotch morsels
6 C Rice Krispies ceral
Pour Rice Krispies in a large bowl and set aside.
Using a double boiler, melt the peanut butter and butterscotch morsels together and stir until creamy.
Pour the melted mixture into the bowl of cereal and mix thoroughly.
Spoon out portions of the mixture onto cookie tray covered with wax paper.
Chill or let sit in a cool place (the back deck for 5 min. in the wintertime works well!).
Try not to eat all of them in one night.
