Sleepy Scotcheroos

Not all Scotcheroos are created equal.  It’s a fact. 

My favorite recipe is courtesy of one my best friends since childhood, Mary.  I’d post her picture below but then I’d no longer have her as a friend…so I won’t…this time.

Get ready to make the tastiest Scotcheroos to date.  You will want to have some place to take them otherwise you will eat the entire pan.  I made them a couple of  week-ends ago and shared them with Nate’s family.  They are so good my nephew was sleep eating them…

Funniest. Thing. Ever.  The poor kid didn’t take a nap and was falling asleep at the table while gnawing away at the scotcheroo….they are THAT good.

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup white syrup (Karo)
  • 1 1/2 cup peanut butter (Jif)  (I think the secret is the half jar of peanut butter.)
  • 4 cups Rice Krispies
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (Nestle)
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips (Nestle)

I’m usually not a product snob but I totally am with this recipe!!
