sweet start to the new year. [scotcheroos]

December 30th, 2012 by | comments


Hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing holiday with family and friends. I hate to keep this so short, but I’m hopping on a plane to San Francisco for New Year’s. So, with that said, have a fantastic New Year and I’ll see you in 2013! Cheers.

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Jif peanut butter, creamy
  • 1 cup light Karo syrup
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies
  • 6 oz. butterscotch chips
  • 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Cook sugar, peanut butter and Karo syrup in a saucepan over medium heat until smooth and mixture starts to bubble, about 5 minutes. Add Rice Krispies and mix together. Remove from heat and press Rice Krispies mixture into a 9" x 13" greased pan.
  2. In a small glass bowl, melt butterscotch and semi-sweet chocolate chips in the microwave until smooth (can use a double broiler instead). Spread mixture evenly over Rice Krispies. Let scotcheroos sit for a few hours, so chocolate topping hardens.
