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.
