    There is nothing wrong with this recipe!First of all..of course it is sweet! Look at the ingredients..butterscotch and peanut butter make one of the sweetest combinations known to mankind! This is not an everyday snack-it is a treat. The easist no fail way to prepare is put it the chips, butter and peanut butter all in the same bowl and microwave it for 1 min...then stir until all the chips have melted. Your butter and peanut butter wont seperate and it will turn out great!  -  21 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this recipe for a potluck at work and I found that you need a LOT more than 2 cups rice crispies. I put 4 cups, and that worked. I also put the butterscotch chips, the butter (*note - I used I can't believe it's not butter and it turned out good) and the peanut butter all in a bowl in the microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Worked great. I think with these alterations this is a great recipe to make for that special relative with the sweet tooth!  -  29 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
