These have always been one of my very favorite treats. They are SO simple and quick to make. And they are divinely good. I dare say I've eaten 1/2 a pan of them in the past 2 days. And I wonder why I'm getting chubby cheeks. It's all the baby's fault. Nonono.
1 c. light corn syrup
1 c. smooth peanut butter
1 c. sugar
1/2 box of Rice Krispies (or corn flakes are really good too!)
1 (12-oz) bag chocolate chips
1 (12-oz) bag butterscotch chips (I often time skip the butterscotch and just do one bag of chocolate chips)
In a sauce pan over medium heat, combine corn syrup, peanut butter, sugar. Heat while stirring until mixture warms and becomes a smooth consistency. Don't boil or cook too long or the bars will be hard. Pour mixture over large bowl of cereal and mix until incorporated. Pour into a sprayed 9x13 pan.
In a microwave-safe bowl pour both bags or chips (chocolate & butterscotch). Heat for 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until the chips are all melted and mixed together. Pour over Scotcharoos and allow to set up.
