No-Bake Special K Bars

I reached 1,000 views today!

Thank you to everyone who has checked out my blog over the past month. I think this calls for a late night celebratory post! How about some delicious no-bake cookies?


My mom has been making Special K bars for as long as I can remember. Apparently it’s a recipe that came from my dad’s mother years ago. This dessert is easy to whip together in a pinch and requires few ingredients that can be stored in the cupboard for a rainy day.  Those are the best kind of recipes in my opinion.

My only problem with these bars is that I can’t stop eating them. They’re sweet, and chocolaty, and full of peanut butter. What’s not to like?


1 cup peanut butter

1 cup Karo syrup

1 cup brown sugar

7-8 cups Special K cereal

1 bag milk chocolate chips

1 bag butterscotch morsels


Step One: Mix peanut butter, brown sugar, and Karo syrup in a large bowl. Microwave for 3 minutes.


Step Two: Once sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth pour cereal into bowl. Stir gently to coat cereal.


Step Three: Scoop mixture into a 9×13 pan. Press cereal into pan with a potato masher.


Step Four: In a medium bowl, microwave chocolate chips and butterscotch morsels for 4 minutes or until melted. Stir periodically. When chocolate mixture is smooth, pour over cereal and spread evenly with a spatula.




Step Five: Allow topping to harden at room temperature and enjoy!


Mmm… Thanks for reading!
