Scotcheroos August 16, 2009

scotcharooI bought a bag of butterscotch chips a few months ago with this recipe in mind, and I am just now coming around to making it.   This is a perfect summer treat to make since the oven is not needed to make them.  I actually used my microwave.  They can also be made over the stove.  


1 cup butterscotch morsels

1/2 cup peanut butter

4 cups rice krispies

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup powdered sugar

2 Tbsp butter, softened

1 Tbsp water

Melt butterscotch morsels with peanut butter in the microwave just until smooth.  Add rice krispies and stir to coat.  Press half the cereal mixture into a 8×8 greased pan.  Chill in refrigerator and set aside remaining cereal mixture.

Combine chocolate morsels, powdered sugar, butter and water.  Microwave in 30 second increments until mixture is melted and very smooth.  Spread over chilled cereal mixture.  Spread remaining cereal mixture evenly over the chocolate layer and press gently.  Chill for at least 3o minutes before cutting into squares.

    Do these need to stay refrigerated?

    I am so happy I found your recipe. Growing up my mom made these and they are my favorite. She lost her recipe and all I could fin online was the recipe with just one layer of the krispie mixture-thanks so much for sharing.
