My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and ktmadeit.com was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Special K Bars

This has been, and always will be, one of my favorite treats my mama makes!
{ Prep Time: 15-20 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 24-36 bars }

Ingredients:
6 cups Special K cereal
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter (not the all natural kind!)
Butter flavored cooking spray

Directions:
1. Measure Special K into a large buttered bowl. Spray a 9x13" pan with cooking spray; set both aside.
2. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil, stirring occasionally. 
3. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and mix well.
4. Pour hot mixture over Special K and stir until combined. Spread into prepared pan. Let stand in a cool place, but do not refrigerate! 
5. For the topping, measure out chocolate and butterscotch pieces in a medium microwave-safe bowl or double boiler. Once chocolate has melted, spread evenly onto Special K mixture. Once firm, cut into bars. You may put the bars in the fridge at this point, but just long enough to harden the top layer ~ no more than 20 minutes.
