The most popular version of this recipe calls for crushed cornflakes, but I've always liked the combination of oats and butterscotch, so I use toasted oats cereal (such as Cheerios).
- 1 large (11-ounce) bag butterscotch morsels (chips)
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cups finely crushed unsweetened toasted oat cereal, or as needed
- 1 cup ground pecans, preferably toasted
- Milk or water, if needed
