I would imagine that you could substitute Special K in any recipe that calls for Rice Krispies. I'd try it if I were you. Good luck!

I use this cereal in my recipe for rice krispie bars. My kids actually like it better! Of course we put lots of sprinkles on top to make them even more appealing!
1-3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1- 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup ( 2 sticks ) butter,room temperture
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup grandulated sugar
1 - 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup quick oats ( not instant ) (I used old fashioned)
2 cups coarsely crushed corn flakes
( Eve used Bran flakes, I used Total )Special K is OK too.
1/2 cup flaked coconut
(Other Add- In OPTIONS, but don't use all of these in one batch,just your taste )
1/2 cup peanut butteror 1/2 cup chopped nuts,
1/2 cup raisins, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, cloves or allspice,
1/2 cup applesauce , canned pumpkin or cooked and mashed Zucchini )
Preheat oven to 350* Lightly grease some baking sheets.
In a large bowl sift together flour, baking soda,baking powder and salt.
In another large bowl, beat butter,brown and white sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
Add eggs; beat well. Add vanilla; beat to combine. Gradually stir flour mixture into the butter - sugar mixture. Beat well. With spoon sir in oats,corn flakes and cocnut. Drop dough by teaspoonsful about 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake 1 sheet at a time until cookies are lightly browned, about 8-10 minutes. Remove to rack, let cool. Yeild about 5 DZ. cookies.
These cookies freeze well. Enjoy, GG Vi
Go to www.recipezaar.com and put, special k, in the search box, there are 17 recipes to choose from.
Crush them and use to top casseroles, as filler for meatballs or loaf. I would even think you could make granola with them too and bars.
They make the best scotcharoos. Use Special K cereal instead of using rice krispies. They are much softer. If you need the recipe for scotcharoos here it is with the Special K cereal in place of the rice krispies.
1 C kero syrup (light)
1 C sugar
1 C peanut butter
Put these three ingredients in sauce pan on stove top and melt on low to medium heat until smooth.
Add 5 cups Special K cereal. Mix into melted mix.
It will be a little stiff to mix.
Spread into 9 x 13 pan.
Melt 1 C butterscotch, 1 C chocolate chips along with 1 T peanut butter in microwave-safe bowl. Do not over melt as the chips will become hard.
Spread melted chips on top of scotcharoos in pan and let cool completely.
My mom used Special K in a drop cookie recipe.
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups Special K
Put sugar and syrup in a large microwavable bowl. Microwave on high until mixture comes to a boil. Add peanut butter and stir. Stir in vanilla. Stir in the cereal. Drop by spoonsfuls on waxed paper.
Notes: These don't keep real well - both because they are yummy and because the cereal gets soggy. And I don't like the taste of Special K so I use Rice Krispies in this recipe.

Make rice krispy treats using Special K instead. Works great with Honey Bunches of Oats too!
