6 cups rice crispy cereal
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, browned
10 ounces marshmallows
1/4 cup butterbeer syrup (I used butterscotch ice cream topping)

1. Lightly coat cake pan(s) of desired size (I used 9×13) in cooking spray or melted butter; set aside.
2. In a large bowl, combine the cereal and butterscotch chips; set aside.
3. Combine the marshmallows, butter, and butterbeer syrupt (or butterscotch ice cream topping) in a large saucepan set over medium heat. Stir constantly until the marshmallows are completely melted. Stir in the cereal mixture until it is evenly coated with the melted marshmallows.
4. Once combined, press the mixture into the prepared pan(s). Allow to cool completely before frosting or serving.

  • These look good, but you don’t mention how to use the butterbeer (butterscotch) syrup in the instructions. Do you add it to the melted mixture? Or use it for frosting? That seems the most likely to me, but I just thought I’d ask.

    • Hi Liz! Thanks for the comment — and for bringing that error to my attention! I have edited the post to reflect that you add the butterbeer/butterscotch syrup into the marshmallow/butter mixture. Once those three ingredients are smoothly blended together, add the cereal and butterscotch chips to make the krispie treats. Hope that helps — and again, my apologies for the oversight!
