Rice Krispies Treats: Scotcheroos

Hello! Rice Krispie treats are my favorite, and make me think of being a kid. Growing up, we’d sometimes make Scotcheroos, and I’d completely forgotten about them until recently.

I decided to make a batch last week, and they hit the spot!

Here’s the basic recipe:


  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. light corn syrup (Karo)
  • 1 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 6 c. Rice Krispies
  • 1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 c. butterscotch chips


  • In a large sauce pan, melt sugar and corn syrup. Bring to a slight boil.
  • Remove from heat and add in peanut butter. Stir.
  • Add in Rice Krispies. I add in 3 cups, stir, and then add in the remaining 3 cups. Stir to combine.
  • Put mixture in a greased 9×13 pan. Make sure to spread evenly in the pan.
  • In a microwaveable bowl, combine the chocolate chips and the butterscotch chips. Microwave 30 seconds at a time until they are melted and smooth. I only had to microwave for less than 2 minutes.
  • Spread the melted mixture on to the Rice Krispie treats.
  • I always put them in the fridge for a bit to help the topping to set.
  • then…ENJOY!

While I can plow through a tray of regular Rice Krispie treats, these are so decadent that I can show some restraint! They are such a sweet treat, and the family approved.

What is your favorite dessert from your childhood?

  1. I forgot about the butterscotch chips! I have everything to make these but those except my Rice Krispies are the 4th of July ones! I really need to use them up. My family is not big on the regular or these and I would/will eat too many myself so I need to wait until I can take them somewhere! Ha!
