Dave's Christmas Crunch Cookies

These cookies are so much fun to make and so easy. I love to make them during the holidays and especially for our cookie swap, but they[ are great any time. I guess you could add the chocolate chips and butterscotch into the cookies, but I like the sweetness it adds as a glaze.]

Ingredients
  • Cookies:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy
  • 6 cups puffed rice cereal (recommended: Rice Krispies)
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips, melted
Directions
For the cookies:

In a medium saucepan, bring the sugar and corn syrup to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Remove from heat, stir in the peanut butter, and then fold in the puffed rice. Let cool until cool enough to touch. Spread waxed paper to cover a 2-foot long area. Press cookie batter, 1/2-inch thick, onto waxed paper. Cut cookies with cookie cutters, and then transfer to a cookie sheet.

For the glaze:

Melt chocolate and butterscotch separately in a double boiler over barely simmering water or in the microwave at 50 percent power.

In a medium bowl, combine melted chocolate and butterscotch. Using the back of a metal spoon, drizzle glaze over the cookies. Set aside until glaze sets, about 15 to 20 minutes.
