Do you know how much I appreciate you, dear reader? Whether you come to my blog for book recommendations or to wrestle with me through Scripture truth and living the Christian life. Whether you’ve read my novels or want to read them (or have no interest in reading them!). By reading any of my words online or on a page, you have become my friend.
I found myself wishing I could give each of you a token of that friendship, especially as Christmas time. And then I realized I could!
One of our family traditions at Christmas is a treat we call K’s. My mom made them when I was growing up, and I’ve made them every year since I got married. It’s the one Christmas yummy that never fails to appear at our house in December. So since I can’t bring each of you a plate of K’s to enjoy, I’ve giving you the recipe. If you and your family try them, I hope you’ll get a warm glow of friendship as you remember where you got the recipe. And you’ll know I’m wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
3 Tblsp butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white corn syrup
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
6 cups Special K cereal
Melt together the first four ingredients. Remove from heat and stir in cereal. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan and spread evenly.
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 oz. butterscotch chips
Melt the chips together (a double boiler works best, as does letting the butterscotch melt almost completely before adding the chocolate) and spread evenly over cereal mixture. Let cool. Cut into squares.
