I will not take any blame for your pants fitting a little bit tighter next week. I will however take credit for your inner child coming out and those “oh so happy” endorphins being released. Because, no matter if your pants are little more snug, these bars are sure to make you happy ya’ll.
For the bars:
- 6 cups rice cereal
- 6 cups corn flakes, slightly smashed
- 1 2/3 cups corn syrup
- 1/3 cup honey
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 2 cups peanut butter
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups butterscotch chips
- 1 cup heavy cream
In a large bowl, combine rice cereal and corn flakes. Set aside.
Stirring occasionally, heat corn syrup, honey, brown sugar, and peanut butter in large saucepan until bubbles begin to reach the surface. (You don't need a rolling boil for this) Pour over cereal and stir to combine.
Lightly spray 1/2 sheet pan with cooking spray and press cereal mixture into pan.
Heat heavy cream over medium heat until it reaches a boil. Pour over butterscotch and chocolate chips and let sit 25-30 seconds. Whisk to combine.
Pour ganache over cereal bars and spread evenly with an offset spatula.
Let the bars firm up. Once the chocolate has firmed, cover the bars until ready to serve. Bars will last longer if kept in refrigerator. (If refrigerating, bars are best when left out for about 30 minutes to allow chill to subside)
