Scotcheroos are the perfect gooey and chewy no bake treat bar! With a peanut butter rice crispy treat topped with butterscotch and chocolate!
I remember I first tried scotcheroos at a church party, it wasn’t exactly significant, except I remember loving this sweet dessert. I never would have thought of combing the flavors of peanut butter with butterscotch, but with the chocolate too these flavors make a perfect combination.
I actually tried making scotcheroos once before, and don’t ask me how but they totally sucked. I think I may have added too much cereal because they were too crumbly and dry. So when I knew I wanted to try them again this week I read about 10 recipes on how to make them online, to see if one had more or less of something to make sure I wouldn’t make the mistake again. But they were all exactly the same. So I stuck to the basics and went for another go of it. And they turned out marvelously this time.
So, I’m sorry if this is a recipe you already have because you’ve made these for years and years and years and I’m a late arrival to the bandwagon, but if you haven’t tried these before, and you like butterscotch, peanut butter and chocolate (separate or together) then this is a recipe for you. And its miraculously easy too.

Enjoy. with a glass of milk.
