Scotcharoos


I cannot turn down this classic treat.  It speaks to my inner child and I just can't say no!  If you've never had a Scotcharoo and don't know what I'm talking about, you most definitely need to make these!  Think of a Rice Krispie treat.  Now remove the marshmallows and replace them with a creamy, caramelly (is that even a word?) peanut butter sauce.  Then, top it off with melted chocolate and butterscotch chips and there you have it, a tasty little treat that you just can't say no to.  Trust me, you won't want to say no to this one!


Ingredients
1 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup creamy peanut butter
6 cups rice krispies
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips

Directions
Put rice krispies in large mixing bowl and set aside.  Grease 9X13 inch pan.  Pour sugar and corn syrup in a sauce pan.  Heat over medium high heat, stirring frequently, until it starts to boil.  Add peanut butter.  Stir in until smooth.  You want to do these next steps quickly so that the heat from the caramel sauce will melt the chips.  Remove caramel sauce from heat and pour over rice krispies.  Stir until thoroughly coated with caramel sauce.  Pour into greased 9X13 pan and press into the shape of the pan.  Evenly sprinkle chocolate and butterscotch chips over the top.  Use a spoon to spread the chips around the top as they melt.  Chill until chocolate is hardened.  Cut into squares and serve.

I love, love, love these! It has killed me that I can't get all the ingredients here, you better believe I have a list a mile long of recipes to make when we get back and this is at the top! Great pictures, btw :)

They are such a simple little treat but totally one of my faves too! You're going to be cooking for a month solid when you get back just to catch up on everything you missed!
