We have grown up with these delicious scotcheroos! We love the peanut butter goodness added into the rice krispie treats. They are so easy to make and a quick dessert when you don’t have a lot of time. Bet you can’t eat just one!!!
1 cup sugar
1 cup white karo corn syrup
1 1/2 cups peanut butter, creamy or chunky
6 cups rice krispies
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
In a heavy saucepan add the sugar and karo syrup together. Cook together until it starts to boil, stirring constantly. Then remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter until it has melted and blended in well. Have the six cups of rice krispies in a big mixing bowl. Pour the warm peanut butter mixture over the cereal. Stir in well until all of the rice krispies are covered. Press into a 9×13 inch pan that has been sprayed lightly with non stick cooking spray.
In a microwave safe bowl melt the milk chocolate chips and butterscotch chips together. (microwave for about 30 seconds, stir and then microwave for another 30 seconds) Stir until well blended and spread over the rice krispie mixture. Let set up for about an hour and then ENJOY!
