Grandma's Recipes: Crunchy Fudge Sandwiches
Today's recipe is a newspaper clipping. It was published in The Blade Sunday Magazine on March 8, 1970. There is a copyright date of 1969 for the Kellogg Company. It is clearly part of an advertisement for Nestle morsels and Rice Krispies.
1 6-oz. pkg. (1 cup) Nestle's Butterscotch Morsels
1/2 cup peanut butter
4 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal
1 tablespoon water
1 6-oz. pkg. (1 cup) Nestle's Semi-sweet Morsels
1/2 cup sifted confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons soft butter or margarine
1. Met butterscotch Morsels with peanut butter in heavy saucepan over very low heat, stirring until well blended. Remove from heat.
2. Add rice Krispies cereal; stir until well coated with butterscotch mixture. Press half of cereal mixture into a buttered 8x8x2 inch pan. Chill in refrigerator while preparing fudge mixture. Set remaining cereal mixture aside.
3. Combine chocolate Morsels, sugar, butter and water in top of double boiler; place over hot water and stir until chocolate melts and mixture is well blended. Spread over chilled cereal mixture. Spread remaining cereal mixture evenly over top. Press in gently. Chill. remove from refrigerator for about 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
Yield: about 25 1 1/2 inch squares.
Translation: Nothing to change here. I would make them as written. I do remember Grandma making these for almost every potluck and occasion. She always packed them in a round tupperware dish. I rescued that dish and gave it to my cousin for Christmas one year. I put in a bag of marshmallows because I also had the handwritten Rice Krispies treats recipe. My cousin let me know that no marshmallows ever entered Grandma's Rice Krispies cookies. Now is know what she meant. I will have to send her this one.
