It's a crowd pleaser. It's and delicious so easy to prepare.



Mix all together by hand or with a mixer. Pour into a greased and floured jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes.

When cool, frost with cream cheese frosting. Canned frosting works great.

Bring 1 cup sugar and 1 cup corn syrup to boil for 3 minutes over medium heat. Remove from heat and add 12 oz. crunchy peanut butter; stir until smooth. Add 3 cups rice crispies cereal and stir to coat.

Turn out into 9x13 inch greased pyrex and press into shape. While this sets, melt 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup butterscotch chips together in microwave; stir until smooth. Pour over cereal mixture and cut into squares when cool.

Try this one from my second oldest sister, Jan





NOTE: All ingredients starred will have to be purchased for recipe.

ADDED NOTES: Tastes incredibly like Mars bars!


3 regular size Mars bars, cut up into cubes* 3

3 c. crispy rice cereal* 750 mL

3 oz(1/3 c.) marshmallows[use minis or cut-up large 75 mL


2 oz(1/4 c.) butter*[no substitutes, needed for richness] 50 mL


 Melt together all ingredients, except cereal in a saucepan on the stovetop or in a large microsafe bowl in microwave, stirring frequently.

 Remove from heat and stir cereal in quickly.

 Press mixture into a greased 8 or 9" square baking pan with the back of a spoon or lightly greased hands.

 Ice with your favorite chocolate icing or melt semisweet chocolate and pour over the top after the slice has cooled.

 Cut into smallish pieces as this is a rich square.

COMMENTS: Tried a small bite of this at the post-Christmas 1999 road trip to Burlington and found it delicious. I would probably make this for a special event or as special treat for Dave as it is very sweet.

If you have ever had Naniamo bars, this is a tasty switch

Do a google search for "Martha Washington Candy". My mother made these and gave them out in shirt boxes wrapped in Christmas paper. The recipes make quite a lot. Note: She skipped the chocolate dipping- I could not get enough of these!
