Oh my goodness you guys, it has been a loooong summer already. Things have been super crazy around here, which is why I haven’t been posting much. But I think things are calming down, so I am hoping to get back to a semi-regular schedule here on the blog.
Also, it has been super hot here the last few weeks, and it looks like it is going to continue for a while. Are you dealing with this extreme heat as well? If you are, and even if you aren’t, you’ll love the next few recipes I’ve got planned for you, since they are all no bake! This first one couldn’t be easier. It is only four ingredients, and you probably have most of them in your pantry now. You only need chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, peanut butter, and corn flakes.
But as always around here, there are lots of ways you can customize it. The original recipe, which my family has made for years, uses marshmallows in place of the corn flakes and presses in into a 9″x13″ pan. My college roommate once made something similar with corn flakes. Since I am not a fan of marshmallows (that original dessert is just about the only way I eat them), I loved that twist on the bars. You can use either marshmallows or unsweetened cereal, or a combination of both. If you don’t like corn flakes, I would try something like Chex cereal, or even Rice Krispies. You want something that isn’t too dense. You could also stir in some nuts or even dried fruit if that’s your thing.
These cookies are simple and quick to put together, and they won’t heat up your kitchen. They aren’t fancy, but they are delicious. I hope you try them, because I know you will love them!
