Chocolate Scotcheroos

   The first time I ever tasted a Chocolate Scotcheroo was at my little sister's baby shower, 7 years ago. I took one bite, fell in-love, and immediately went up to her friend (who hosted the shower) and begged her for the recipe.

   They are a rice krispie treat that are coated in a delicious peanut butter concoction, and topped with a butterscotch-chocolate topping. They are seriously so good! They're rich too, so a little goes a long way.

  Ever since my sister's shower I've noticed these being served at many showers and parties I have been to. They really are delicious, and such a perfect treat for a crowd!

Chocolate Scotcheroos

1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup granulated white sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
5 cups crispy rice cereal (Rice Krispies cereal)
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips

Directions:  In a medium saucepan, pour in the 1 cup corn syrup and 1 cup sugar. Turn heat to medium and stir together until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil.  Remove from heat. Stir in the creamy peanut butter and mix well.

Stir in the 5 cups of crispy rice cereal until thoroughly combined and coated. Pour mixture into a greased 9x13 baking dish. Spread evenly into the pan. Set aside and let cool about 10 minutes.

In a microwavable-safe bowl, melt the butterscotch and milk chocolate chips at 30 second increments until melted. Stir and then pour evenly over the mixture in pan. Let stand until firm.

Once completely cooled, cut into 2-inch bars and serve. Enjoy! ♥

Makes 16 bars.
