  • 6 cups puffed rice cereal (like Rice Krispies)

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips

How To Make The Best Ever Scotcheroos Recipe

  • Heat corn syrup and sugar in a medium saucepan. As soon as the mixture comes to a simmer, remove from heat and whisk in the peanut butter until smooth.
  • (This can also be done in the microwave using a microwave safe bowl in 20 – 30 second increments, stirring in-between, until sugar is fully dissolved into corn syrup).
  • Pour the peanut butter and sugar mixture into the Rice Krispies and mix well. Work quickly, it stiffens as it cools.
  • Press the cereal mixture into a parchment lined 9×13 inch casserole dish.
  • Melt the milk chocolate chips and the butterscotch chips together with a double boiler, or in the microwave in 20 – 30 second increments, stirring each time, until completely melted.
  • Spread the melted chocolate over the cereal mixture.
  • Let set & cool completely before removing from pan and cutting.
