This was one of my favorite desserts growing up as a kid. My Mom made it so often she had it down to a science and never had to measure any of the ingredients. Today I am going to share with all of you how to make scotch-a-roos.
-6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal
-1 cup of white syrup (corn syrup)
-1 cup of sugar
-1 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter
-1 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (milk chocolate work best)
-1 cup of butterscotch chips
Prepare a 9 x 13 baking dish by spraying with your choice of non-stick grease. Place your syrup and sugar in a large pot and bring to a boil. Add your peanut butter to the pot and mix thoroughly. Remove pot from heat and add Rice Krispies. Dump contents of pot into your baking dish and smooth out across the dish to create an even surface of Rice Krispie. Using either your microwave or a small pan melt your chocolate chips and butterscotch chips together. If I use the stove to melt my chips I make sure to constantly stir the chocolate and butterscotch so the contents do not burn (I also like to add a splash of milk when I use the stove). After your chips are completely melted pour onto the top of your Rice Krispies and spread evenly. Allow your Scotch-a-Roos to sit before cutting. I like to throw my pan in the fridge so I can be sure my top layer sets. After your topping has set, cut and enjoy!
