Chocolate Glazed Special K Bars

Looking for a quick dessert to make without heating up your kitchen? This is a great treat to share at any potluck, afternoon snack or just for any reason whatsoever. It comes together really quickly. I love the textures and the subtle hint the chocolate frosting adds to this easy snack.

Chocolate Glazed Special K Bars

5 to 6 c. Special K cereal
2 c. mini marshmallows
1/2 - 2/3 c. pecans, chopped
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. brown sugar

Over medium heat, mix together the marshmallows, butter and brown sugar and boil no longer than three minutes. (Any longer will make your bars too crunchy. I like to heat it just until the marshmallows dissolve). 
Place the cereal and nuts in a large bowl. Pour the boiled mixture over the cereal and stir until blended. Place in a buttered 9x13 baking dish and press down to even out.

1/2 c. butterscotch chips
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Melt together at 30 second increments in the microwave until all the lumps are gone. With a fork, dip into the mixture and drizzle the frosting over the cereal bars as much as you'd like. Don't forget to lick the bowl :) Cut the bars into desired sizes. Then eat up!
