Denise’s Special K Chews (a.k.a Hawgs)


Special K Chews are a favorite family recipe that we traditionally always make for the holidays, and they’re wonderful for holiday gifts and bake sales too.  The problem is that they’re SO good we always make terrible hogs of ourselves every time they’re around, so ever since I was a little girl we’ve called them Hawgs.  They’re super quick and easy to make, and you probably have most of the ingredients on hand already.

Special K Chews (a.k.a. Hawgs)

These are so good that they disappear FAST!


  • 1 cup white corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 6 cups Special K cereal
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips


  1. Stir sugar and syrup in a large pan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add 1 cup of peanut butter, stir, add 6 cups Special K cereal and continue stirring until mixed well.
  2. Press mixture into a 9×13 inch pan. Sprinkle chocolate and butterscotch baking chips over the top. You can use two cups of chocolate chips if you prefer not to use butterscotch. Spread them with a knife when the cereal mixture melts them, or place under the broiler for a minute or so to melt the chips. Cool and cut into squares.

    My family have been making these for years and we don’t put anything on top and they are awesome! So, if these sound good, but you don’t want them as sweet, try them naked!
