Governor Bars



Sometimes my sweet tooth cravings come when there is not really enough time to spend in the kitchen baking. That is when I start searching for a no bake recipe that will satisfy the cravings in less than half the time. I have been in a rice krispy mood lately and wanted to also incorporate rice krispies into the no bake recipe requirement. This was the perfect recipe to satisfy both cravings. The chocolate layer on top is quite rich, but is balanced by the rice cereal bottom. I’m not sure why the bars are named “governor”, but they are pretty addicting and hard to resist!

Governor Bars

6 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup honey

1 cup sugar

12 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

12 oz bag butterscotch chips

Place rice krispies and peanut butter in a large mixing bowl. Do not mix together yet; set aside.

Heat the honey and sugar in a medium saucepan until it is just boiling. Immediately remove from heat and pour into the bowl with the Rice Krispies and peanut butter. Mix with a wooden spoon until combined. Lightly press the mixture into a greased 9 X 13 inch pan.

Melt the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in a microwave safe bowl for about one minute, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir until melted and smooth. Spread evenly on top of the rice krispies. Let cool until hardened before slicing into bars.
