Gloopy Glops


  • 5 cups “Special K” cereal
  • 1 cup light Karo corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 12 oz (1½ cups) peanut butter (creamy preferred, but not a showstopper)
  • 6 oz butterscotch morsels
  • 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips



  • 9x9 pan (9 x 13 can work too)
  • Large bowl
  • Medium microwave-safe bowl
  • Medium saucepan (4 cup capacity minimum)
  • Spatula


  • Grease 9x9 pan with some butter or spray oil.
  • Measure the cereal into large bowl.
  • In the medium saucepan, over med-high heat, bring the corn syrup & sugar to a boil.
  • Immediately take off heat and add peanut butter. Stir until smooth.
  • Pour peanut butter mixture into cereal bowl. Stir until combined.
  • Don’t over do it, you want the cereal flakes to hold some of their shape.
  • Move cereal+PB mixture into the 9x9 pan. Press to make the top pretty even.
  • If using a larger pan, just use 2/3 of the pan. The mixture will hold its form.
  • Put just the butterscotch morsels in the medium bowl.
  • Microwave on medium until they’re melted. Then add the chocolate chips to the butterscotch goo and melt them too. Stir until smooth.
  • If you don't have a microwave, do this step in a double boiler.
  • The butterscotch has a higher melting point than the PB.
  • Smooth the butterscotch+chocolate mixture on top of the cereal mixture in the pan.
  • Cut when chocolate solidifies. Or just eat warm and gooey.
