    Let stand 15 to 20 minutes to set.

Expert Tips

  • You may use any variety of Chex™ cereal.
  • For best results, avoid using a "natural-style" peanut butter.
  • Do not overheat the butterscotch-peanut butter mixture, or else it will scorch and be ruined. Microwave it just long enough to melt the chips.
