Chocolate Rice Krispie Bar Cookies

Is there anything sweeter than getting a surprise package in the mail? Unless maybe it's getting a surprise package from your college-aged son who's in the throes of majorly intense end-of-the-year projects. But who still took time to remember his mom for Mother's Day.

1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. butterscotch chips
1/4 c. peanut butter
4 1/2 c. Rice Krispies

Put first three ingredients in large bowl and microwave "until creamy." Add cereal and stir. Press into 8 x 8-inch pan and let cool. (Let cool is underlined twice, so I'm assuming this is the most difficult part of the process -- you know, the waiting to eat it part.)

I know, Lori, what a kid, eh? One of his friends off at school sent me cookies she'd baked a couple months ago, too, after we had to put our dog to sleep. I am blessed with wonderful young people in my life!

That is the nicest thing.

What if you added marshmallow fluff to the hot chips? Okay I just have to try that now. I'll let you know how it works.
