4 cups of miniature marshmallows
6 cups of Rice Krispies (or similar rice cereal)
1 cup (6 oz. Pkg) of butterscotch morsels

(stirring until well blended).
Remove the pan from the heat and spread the butterscotch evenly over the Rice Krispies-marshmallow mixture in pan.
Cool the product until it becomes firm.
