My Favorite go to treat…

 

Coming from a large family I love finding treats that are easy to make and everyone loves. I have always been the “baker” in the family so I have experimented quite a bit with all different types of treats. Scotcharoos are definitely my go to!!! My family LOVES anything with peanut butter and chocolate. These are super simple to make and I personally seem to ALWAYS have the ingredients in my pantry! These are also so perfect for a work pot luck or treats for the neighbors!! You can “dress them up” with sprinkles or “pulling” the chocolate when it is still hot to create a unique design (See the pictures above).

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies
    • For the Topping
      • 1 to 1 & 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
      • 1 to 1 & 1/2 cups butterscotch morsels

Combine sugar and syrup in 3 quart saucepan. Cook over moderate heat, stirring frequently until mixture begins to boil. (I let it boil for roughly 15 seconds) REMOVE FROM HEAT. Mix in peanut butter. Stir until SMOOTH. Mix in rice krispies, STIR until WELL blended. Press mixture into buttered 9×13 pan.

Melt all chips together over low/medium heat. STIR NON STOP.. Chocolate will burn FAST so make sure you keep everything moving. Once almost all chips are melted REMOVE from heat and continue stirring until all chips are melted.

Spread evenly over Rice Krispies mixture. Let set for 2 + hours.

ENJOY!!
