Scotcheroos

I can’t believe that I’ve almost been blogging for 2 years, and I’ve never posted about scotcheroos before. My love affair with scotheroos started about 6 years ago when Brad and I had just started dating. In the summer during our college years, we would part ways and move back to our hometowns to spend the summers with out families. Every weekend, we would take turns driving to each others house to spend the weekend together. He would bring me flowers, and I would bring him scotcheroos. Not a bad deal if I don’t say so myself. :)

 

Now, if you’ve never tried them, what are you waiting for?  The bottom layer consists of peanut butter and rice krispies (and uh, lots of sugar), while the top layer is a mix of chocolate and butterscotch chips. The bars are chewy, yet crispy at the same time. They are so simple to make, but they remain one of my favorite desserts ever. Be sure you have some friends to help you eat them, because once you eat one, it’s hard not to devour the whole pan!

    Those look fabulous!

    I was sad to see the truncated feed on my Google Reader though. :-(. Do you plan to use one from now on?

    If you want to make the bars as thin as in the pictures I had to double the chocolate/butterscotch mix for decent coverage! Heads up. Absolutely delicious. I’ve been eating the bottom layer while melting the chocolate… yummmmy

    This is one of my children’s and my favorite snacks. We like it with all butterscotch on top too. They are gone in a day.
