Chocolate Scotcheroos

Kim Biegacki


I love the chewy texture of this bar cookie that is blended with peanut butter and topped with chocolate and butterscotch.

My nephews really love this recipe and I always have to put the cookies up and out of reach or else they eat them all. LOL
This bar cookie is super easy to make and will satisfy your sweet tooth.

Another recipe from my "Best-Loved Chocolate Recipes" cookbook.

How to Make Chocolate Scotcheroos


  1. Measure corn syrup and sugar into large saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil.
  2. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter; mix well.
  3. Add rice crispies cereal. Stir until well coated. Press mixture into 13X9X2 inch pan coated with cooking spray. Set aside.
  4. Melt chocolate and butterscotch morsels together in small saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Spread evenly over cereal mixture. Let stand until firm. Cut into bars when cool.

    I have also melted down 2 cups of chocolate chips and then sprinkled the butterscotch chips on top.
