Recipe: Scotcheroos!


If you like Rice Krispie Treats, peanut butter, and chocolate, then you will LOVE Scotcheroos! These are a popular dessert here in Iowa, and once you make them, you’ll be adding them to your recipe book, too! There are several slight variations out there, but this is mine.



  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 cup milk chocolate morsels
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips


  1. Place corn syrup and sugar into 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat.
  2. Stir in peanut butter. Mix well.
  3. Add the cereal into than pan, OR have the cereal in a larger bowl and pour the mixture on top. Stir until well coated.
  4. Press mixture into a jelly roll pan that you have sprayed with cooking spray.
  5. In a double boiler (or in the microwave), melt the semi-sweet, milk chocolate, and butterscotch chips together. Spread over the Rice Krispies.
  6. To set the chocolate faster, put the pan in the fridge for half and hour. Cut into squares and store in an air-tight container.
