Chewy chocolate chip and rice crispy squares

    30 min

    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.

    Like this mix as you can do so much with it. Lovely for building character's to add to birthday cakes. Taste is amazing.  -  12 Sep 2014


    These are excellent. My husband and son don't like regular rice krispy treats but they both loved these. These are more substantial and flavorful. Two tips: 1) To make pressing the mix down in the jelly roll pan easier, put a plastic baggie on your hand like a glove and spray the "palm" side with cooking spray; then you can press it down evenly with your hand and not mess with a buttered spoon. 2) Sprinkle the chocolate and butterscotch chips over the top of the still warm, newly pressed down krispy mix; the chips will melt and you can smooth them out with a butter knife so you don't need to clean your double boiler. If they don't melt enough, just slip the pan into a low temp oven and watch carefully until they start to glisten; then you can spread them out. This recipe makes a lot.  -  24 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Thank you for this great start to my husbands favorite sweet treat. I changed it just a little- I added a half cup more peanut butter and instead of butterscotch chips I added all chocolate. Thank you I have been looking for this recipie for a year, every time my husband had this he didn't know who made it to ask for the recipe. Such a great time with the kids!  -  08 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
