Scotcharoos: Chocolate Butterscotch Bars

These are a crowd pleaser.
One of my very favorites and the best part...they are quick and easy.

My husband grew up with Scotcharoo's and introduced me to them a few years back.
Oh, they are good. The chocolate with the butterscotch is a perfect match.

1 cup Peanut Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Light Corn Syrup
6 cups Rice Krispies
1 bag Milk Chocolate Chips
1 bag Butterscotch Chips

Grease a 13x9 inch pan. In saucepan bring sugar & corn syrup to boil. Then add peanut butter. Stir until melted. Then remove from heat. Combine with 6 c. Rice Krispies (I like to have these pre-measured in a large mixing bowl.  Then I pour the hot sugar mixture over the Rice Krispies). Spread and press mixture into 13x9 pan. Melt bags of chocolate and butterscotch chips together in microwave about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, depending on microwave.  Heat until just melted. Stir then spread over Rice Krispie mixture. Cool in Fridge.


  1. I have been making these for years! It is the first time I have ever seen the recipe online! :-)

  2. I made these and they are hard as a brick. Any idea why they would of gotten so hard?

    1. You have to boil sugar & corn syrup until it's clarify & immediately stop boil, this will make them chewy, instead of hard!
