Scotcheroos! I used to always call them Peanut Butter Rice Krispies until I started hearing people refer to them as Scotcheroos. So I decided to call them that too! Either way they are SO good. My friends always want me to make them when they come and visit. And I love them too. I try not to make them unless lots of people will be around to help me eat them! This is a good treat to make if you need something easy and fast. Enjoy!

Here are the ingredients: Peanut Butter, Rice Krispies, Karo Syrup, Sugar, Butter, Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips, and Butterscotch Chips.

Put 1 cube of butter, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of Karo Syrup in a pot. Stir until butter is melted.

It should look something like this....

Now bring these ingredients to a boil. Only let it boil for about 45 seconds. This is important! If it boils for longer they will turn out hard and you will be sorry. After 45 seconds remove pot from heat.

Add 1 cup of Peanut Butter and stir it in good. Then let the mixture cool for a few minutes.

Next add 5 cups of Rice Krispies. I like to add them one or two at a time because it makes them easier to stir in!

When you are done it will look something like this! I always have a little taste before putting them in the pan, because I can't help myself!

Put the mixture in an un-greased 9x13 pan and leave it there for a few minutes while making the topping.

Melt 1/2 a package of Semi-sweet chips with 1/2 a bag of Butterscotch chips. (It's about 1 cup each.) You can do this in the microwave or on the stove. Either way it just takes about 2 minutes.
Then frost the Rice Krispies with this delicious topping! After frosting them you can either let the topping harden on its own or you can stick the pan in the fridge and it will harden faster. I usually put them in the fridge because I can't wait!

And here is the finished product! Yum! I love them. This is probably the treat I make the most. Enjoy!
