Keyword: Scotcheroos Recipe
1cuplight corn syrup
6cupsRice Krispies cereal
1½cupssemi-sweet chocolate chips
Spray a 9 x 13 pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large pot, combine your granulated sugar and corn syrup. Place it over medium-high heat and cook until all the sugar is dissolved, stirring continuously.
Remove the pot from the heat and mix in peanut butter. Gently mix in the cereal. Transfer the mixture to the 9 x 13 pan and gently press into an even layer.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips and butterscotch. Microwave for 30-second increments until all the chocolate has melted, stirring in between. Spread the mixture over the Rice Krispies.
Place them into the refrigerator for only thirty minutes for the chocolate to set up. Cut the scotcheroos into individual squares.
If you find the mixture is sticking to your mixing spoon, spray it lightly with cooking spray so it doesn’t stick.
When spreading the melted chocolate and butterscotch mixture over the Rice Krispies layer, make sure it's evenly distributed to create a consistent layer of sweetness.
Don’t skimp on the chilling time. You want to allow the chocolate topping to set properly. This ensures clean and neat cuts when slicing.
