Special K Bars

This is Rocketman's and my children's favorite bars. It has also become my grandchildren's. It is very difficult to eat just one and they are so good for you, right? They have peanut butter in them. Enjoy!
Special K Bars
1 cup sugar
1 cup Karo light corn syrup
1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
6 cups Special K cereal
1/2 bag of Nestles chocolate chips (11 oz)
1/2 bag of Nesles butterscotch chips (11 oz)
1. Place sugar and corn syrup into saucepan and bring to a boil. 
2. Take off the burner and add peanut butter.
3. Add to a large bowl the Special K and peanut butter mixture.  Mix together well.
4. Pour into a 9x13 jellyroll pan.  Spread out and cover with wax paper.  Use rolling pin to smooth.  Remove wax paper when even.
5. In a double boiler, melt chips.  Spread over peanut butter mixture evenly.  Let cool.
6. I find it is easier to cut into squares when it cools to room temperature.  If you cool it in a refrigerator, it is more difficult to cut and the chocolate will crack.
