About this recipe: Gooey, chewy baked squares of chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter, marshmallow and crispy cereal yumminess! These are no-bake, can be made with other crunchy or flake cereals and are ready in just 30 minutes! A perfect sweet treat for the family to have fun making and gobbling together. Note: If you don't have a Swiss roll tin, a roasting tin will do just as well.


Serves: 18 

  • 350g golden syrup
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 110g margarine, softened
  • 260g creamy peanut butter
  • 450g marshmallows
  • 310g crispy rice cereal (like Rice Krispies®)
  • 335g plain chocolate chips
  • 345g butterscotch chips / baking pieces

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. In a large heavy pot over medium-high heat combine the syrup and sugar, bring to the boil and continue to boil for 1 minute. Reduce heat to low and stir in the margarine and peanut butter until melted. Add marshmallows and stir until well blended.
  2. Pour the cereal into a large bowl and stir in the marshmallow mixture, so that the cereal is evenly coated. Grease a 25x38cm Swiss roll tin (or roasting tin) and press the mixture into the tin. Flatten with the back of a buttered spoon.
  3. To make the icing, melt the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips/pieces over a double boiler or in the microwave, stirring frequently until smooth. Spread evenly over the mixture in the tin. Let stand until cool and topping is set. Cut into squares and serve.

Ingredient note:

Butterscotch chips are available online and at speciality baking and candy shops, but if unavailable simply substitute chocolate chips in the recipe.
