This quick and super easy treat is on of my guy’s favorites. He’s had me make them three times in the past two months. I figure it’s time to write the recipe down. The hardest part was figuring out what to call them. I’m dubbing them “Butterscotch Heaps.”

Here’s a photo:

 

Butterscotch Heaps

  • 1 bag butterscotch baking chips (11 or 12oz)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 4 cups corn Chex cereal

In a large mixing bowl, microwave butterscotch chips and 1 tablespoon of shortening for 1 minute.

Stir until smooth. If your mixture is still lumpy you can microwave it for 15secs more as needed. Note: Be careful on this step as the chips can dry out instead of smooth. Add more shortening if needed to counteract.

Drop in corn Chex cereal and gently stir until coated. For thicker coated heaps, use less cereal. For lighter coated, use more.

Spoon out stacks onto wax paper.

Let cool at room temperature (fifteen minutes or so).
