Hello Friends,

I have been playing around with a few simple ingredients to make a butterscotch candy. This recipe uses simple ingredients that I hope you are able to find easily.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Butterscotch Candy

Lydia Menzies

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup Karo light corn syrup
  • 5 cups Corn Flakes cereal
  • 12 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 12 oz. butterscotch chips

Instructions
 

  • In a large saucepan, heat sugar, peanut butter, and light corn syrup over medium heat until smooth.
  • Turn off heat and add in butterscotch chips. Stir continuously to melt the butterscotch into the warm mixture.
  • Add Corn Flakes, and mix to coat the cereal evenly.
  • Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spread mixture evenly on pan.
  • Heat oven to 400 degrees (F).
  • Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly on top of mixture and bake until chocolate chips begin to melt. This takes 15 minutes in my oven. Stay close and watch carefully so that the chocolate does not scorch.
  • When chocolate chips begin to melt and sides begin to bubble, remove from oven and spread chocolate evenly across candy.
  • Let set (about an hour) and then slice into pieces. Enjoy!

I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does! This recipe combines the old-fashioned recipe of Corn Flake Candy with butterscotch and chocolate. I literally could make this each week and my kids and husband wouldn’t get tired of it. Lol! I love adapting older recipes and making them a little bit new. If you have a recipe that you would like to share, please do! You can always email it to me. I will also share a video of this recipe on my Instagram.

LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE PARTY

What began as a simple gesture to introduce my daughter to a wonderful book series has become a special evening ritual for us- reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books!  I must admit, I didn’t realize quite how interesting these books would be to her, but she cannot wait to read all nine in the series.  It was only fitting that her birthday party focus around Little House on the Prairie!  Together, we had a ball planning all of the details of her party that related to the books in some way.  At Camille’s request, we focused on some of her favorite parts of the stories… prairie flowers, covered wagons, tee pees, the colors in the drawings of the books,  and “pretty”…because “Ma” liked things to be pretty!
