Snack Off Submission – Butterscotch Nummyness

This is a little different than my norm, but I figured it was a good way to mix things up on here! Due to some trash talking at work about this year’s “Cereal Snack Creation Bake Off!” and to me having some sort of food-related blog, I was peer-pressured into beating the socks off everyone with my kitchen prowess (hah!). They may as well not have even entered the contest. If you can’t stand the heat, get outta the jungle. Unfortunately, competition was yesterday and it was definitely rigged. Jessica won by bribing the judges with Brown Butter Salt Rice Crispy Treats. Oh well, there’s always next year! It was also fantastic timing, because I got a new camera! Some absurd 12 megapixel kind from Olympus. Yay for Credit Card Reward points!

Dump the bag of Butterscotch and the cup of peanut butter in a large sauce pan (biggest you got) and heat over low heat. Stir occasionally while it all melts together into a soupy deliciousness. Taste test liberally. Once it’s all melted, mix half the box of chex in making sure to coat all pieces. Mix the rest of the box in. I kept mixing and tasting for good measure. Once you’re satisfied, pour out the mixture onto a large area of wax paper. My area was probably 2′ x 3′. Let the chex cool so the coating will set in place. Then mix the rest of your goodies into it. I used pretzel sticks and marshmallows. Turned out freaking awesome. I may be a diabetic now.

1 12oz bag of Butterscotch Morsels
1 box Honey Nut Chex (~14oz)
1 cup Peanut Butter (chunky or creamy)
Other stuff to mix

Makes a whole boatload of snacky stuff. Would be great for a football game or something. Total Cost: $10. Healt……. hahahaha, you thought I was going to say healthy.

  1. You forgot ESIOTROT!!

    [the ESC was promoted to the position of OTT (Official Taste Tester) for the preparation of this snack- thus creating a new awesome nickname :)]

    You won hands down in my lab!

  3. Listen, all I can tell you is that Jessica actually handed out the ballots and someone who directly answers to Jessica counted the votes.

    Where was the UN?

  4. Totally rigged. I think you should propose a new contest and make rules such as “No Jessica winning”. Although, you totally won the Cereal Snack Creation Bake Off Name contest. Psssshht, Butterscotch Nummyness sounds waaaayyyy more edible than a bunch of nouns strung together.
