Scotcheroos or Chocolate-topped Butterscotch Dessert Bars
Thank you, Katie, for finding this for me!
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups Cocoa Krispies or 6 cups Rice Krispies ceral
1 package (6 ounces or 1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 cup butterscotch chips
1. Place corn syrup and sugar into 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter. Mix well. Add Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated. Press mixture into 13x9x2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Set aside.
2. Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Spread evenly over cereal mixture. Let stand until firm. Cut into 2x1-inch bars when cool.
Note: Before measuring corn syrup, coat measuring cup with cooking spray--syrup will pour easily out of cup.
I served these this week to our YSA Institute students along with regular Rice Krispies bars and they disappeared! I also had a bag of Skittles that someone gave us and served them, too. Surprisingly, all the males in the room ATTACKED them! Who knew Skittles was a guy-guilty-pleasure??!!
