Food: Katie's Scotcheroos

These are my mother-in-law's recipe- they are a fabulous dessert bar. They are super rich, so I don't make them unless we are having friends over or going to a get-together (because I'd probably eat them all. By myself. ;)). They are quick to make and make a bunch, so they are perfect for sharing :) Or not. :)
Katie's Scotcheroos
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
5½ cups Rice Krispies
1-6oz. pkg. chocolate morsels
1-6oz. pkg. butterscotch morsels

Combine sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until mixture begins to bubble. remove from heat, stir in peanut butter. Mix well.

Pour over Rice Krispies and stir well until coated. Press mixture into a buttered pan.

For frosting, melt chocolate and butterscotch morsels over low heat, stirring constantly. Spread over Rice Krispies. Cool until firm Cut into bars.


  1. oh boy these look so so good... yummy!

  2. yum, we made these every Christmas growing up, "my grandma's recipe," but at one point we only had Special K around and then that is what we used from then on. Both really good.

  3. I love short & sweet recipes!
    These look like a delight!
