Scotcharoos

Have you ever had a scotcharoo?  They are peanut buttery, chocolatey with a hint of butterscotch, chewy and delicious!


Scotcharoos are super easy, no-bake dessert to make.  Even your kids could make them...with a little help.

I might need to warn you that they are dangerously addictive, so these are perfect to take to a party or a potluck.  Everyone will love you!  And you'll be glad that you didn't eat the whole cookie sheet worth yourself.  (Even though that would be delicious!)


Scotcharoos

Yield: 12x17 pan (cookie sheet) - cut into bars as big or as small as you'd like
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. light corn syrup
  • 1 c. peanut butter
  • 8 c. (or more) rice krispies
  • 6 oz. chocolate chips
  • 6 oz. butterscotch chips
Cooking Directions
  1. Melt butter in sauce pan. Add corn syrup and sugar. Bring just to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter. Add rice krispies and mix well. Start with 8 cups of rice krispies and add more if it looks too "wet".
  2. Press cereal mixture into cookie sheet (12x17).
  3. Melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips in the microwave on high for a minute. Stir. Continue microwaving for 30 second increments, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.
  4. Spread chocolate on top of rice krispie mixture. Let set until chocolate is cooled and hardened. (If you're in a hurry, put it in the fridge to set faster.)

  1. We used to make these in high school all the time! I've never made them with the girls though. I bought all the ingredients to make them when Alex was gone for the weekend and then we forgot to make them. I'll have to do it sometime soon...so yummy!
