Special K Bars

My stepmom introduced my family to these amazing bars several years ago and I had always wanted to get the recipe, but never had a reason to make them... until now. We had a cookout at our house and I had a box of Special K in the pantry. How convenient! These are to die for, definitely good if you need that sugar fix. Just a warning... these are not diet friendly!!! :)

Mmm, we make those too and everybody loves them! We sprinkle the chocolate and butterscotch chips on top and pop the whole pan in the oven for a few minutes, then swirl the softened chips with a knife to make the top all pretty :)
