Scotcheroos
INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 0
  • Servings: 24
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 6 cups Rice Krispy cereal
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
DIRECTIONS
  1. 1. Grease a 13×9-inch pan; set aside. Place sugar and corn syrup into a 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter until melted and combined. Add the cereal; stir well until well coated. Press the mixture into the prepared pan. (Tip: I use a small square of wax paper to press these into the pan – easier to press into an even layer and it won’t stick to the wax paper.)
  2. 2. Melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips together either over a double boiler or in the microwave at 50% power in 30-second increments. Spread evenly over cereal mixture. Let sit until firm (or refrigerate for a faster setting time).
