Snap, Crackle, Scotcheroo!

These are a step up from your traditional Rice Krispie Treat - and way easy to make.

Recipe adapted from
Photos by Bake Yourself Happy

  • 1 cup Karo syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/4 cups butterscotch chips

  1. Place Karo syrup and sugar in a saucepan.  Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until sugar dissolves.  Let mixture begin to boil (but immediately remove from heat - you don't want it to caramelize!)
  2. Stir in peanut butter.  Mix well.
  3. Pour Rice Krispies into a large mixing bowl.  Add peanut butter mixture and stir until all Rice Krispies are coated.
  4. Spray a 13x9x2-inch pan with cooking spray and place Rice Krispie mixture in.  DO NOT press/pound the mixture into the pan, or you will end up with Scotcharocks...
  5. Combine chocolate and butterscotch chips in a microwaveable glass bowl.  Microwave in 30 second intervals, removing to stir after each session.  Continue until chips are smooth and blended.
  6. Spread chocolate-butterscotch mixture on top of Rice Krispies.  Let stand until firm and enjoy!
