Chocolate Scotcheroos

I saw these on A Blog About Food and thought I would try them since I had all the ingredients on hand. They were fun to 4 year old had a blast with it. I won't make them again since they are too sweet for my taste and I didn't realize they had peanut butter in them (of which I am not a fan). This recipe is also on Allrecipes here and has great reviews. I took the bars to work to share and the result was that they are REALLY sweet and people liked them but weren't fawning all over them or anything. If this is your type of dessert treat and you like peanut butter be sure to try them.


1 cup white sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups crispy rice cereal
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips

Butter a 9x13 inch baking pan.
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar and corn syrup, and bring to a rolling boil. Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter. Mix in the rice cereal until evenly coated. Press the mixture into the prepared pan.
In a glass bowl in the microwave, melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips, stirring occasionally until smooth and well blended. Spread over the top of the bars. Chill until set, then cut into bars.


  1. I think I have all those ingredients too.


  2. I will return the compliment--you have a great blog, too! I make these Scotcheroos with Special K cereal and call them K Bars. They are the best!

  3. My husband is a peanut butter and chocolate fanatic! These are right down his ally!

  4. These look mighty tasty but I can see with the addition of white sugar, corn syrup, peabut butter, chocolate and butterscotch chips they would be sweet!

    Sometimes just having one is enough to curb the cravings.
