Rice Krispies Scotcheroos

This recipe came to me through a convoluted email chain, but it's this specific version that my nephews *love*, when made by their maternal grandmother. The time to make is a complete guess on my part.


  1. In a large saucepan, combine sugar and corn syrup. Heat just until bubbly (Do not boil or the bars become a little hard).
  2. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter. Stir until well blended, then gently stir in cereal.
  3. Press mixture lightly into buttered 9 x 13 pan.
  4. Combine chocolate and butterscotch chips and melt in microwave or double boiler.
  5. Immediately spread over bars in pan.
  6. Refrigerate just until chocolate sets and hardens slightly.
  7. Cut in squares. Makes 3 to 4 dozen bars.

I've made a receipe very similar to this one many many years ago, about 25yrs if memory serves me correct. Instead of using the Rice krispies I had used Corn Flakes, its a wonderful treat, for the whole family. UMMM I think I'll go out and buy some peanut butter and make for tonight. My kids will thank you for the idea, but not my waistline!! LOLOLOL!
