What are Scotcheroos?
Scotcheroos are peanut butter Rice Krispie treats topped with melted chocolate and butterscotch chips. They are “no bake”, which means the only cooking is done on the stove top!
Common ingredients for Scotcheroos include: sugar, light corn syrup, peanut butter, Rice Krispies cereal, chocolate chips and butterscotch chips.
Scotcheroos are soft and chewy, and are always popular at parties and potlucks!
How do you make Scotcheroos?
One of the best things about Scotcheroos is how easy they are to make!
Start by combining sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan over medium heat.
Continue whisking the sugar and corn syrup until the sugar dissolves and the mixture starts to boil. Remove the saucepan from heat as soon as it starts boiling so you don’t over-boil and cause your Scotcheroos to be too hard or crunchy.
Whisk in peanut butter until smooth. This mixture will start setting up pretty quickly, so act fast!
Pour the peanut butter mixture over Rice Krispies and gently fold until well combined.
Press the cereal mixture into a 9×13-inch pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or lined with waxed or parchment paper then set aside.
Add chocolate and butterscotch chips to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for a few minutes until melted.
Spread chocolate and butterscotch mixture on top of the cereal mixture and let sit until firm.
Cut into squares and serve.
If you used waxed or parchment paper, life it from the pan and cut on a flat surface. These can be a little difficult to cut through sometimes so that can help!
How do you store Scotcheroos?
- Scotcheroos can definitely be made ahead of time, but be sure to cover them in an airtight container and leave them on the counter.
- If you are wanting to freeze your Scotcheroos, prepare according to the recipe, cut into squares and place inside freezer bags. Let thaw completely before eating them.
