There are so many recipes here at Table for Seven that come from my childhood. These bars are one of them.

Scotcheroos? I am guessing the ‘scotch’ comes from butterscotch chips. The ‘roos’? I’m stumped. 🤔

These are cripsy rice bars made with gooey peanut butter and corn syrup. Then, they are topped off with a combination of melted chocolate and butterscotch chips. Yum overload.

Ingredients Needed:

  • Crispy rice cereal ( ex: Rice Krispies or brand equivalent)
  • Light corn syrup
  • Sugar
  • Peanut butter
  • Chocolate chips
  • Butterscotch chips

Recipe Notes:

  • If you aren’t able to find butterscotch baking chips, you can substitute with peanut butter baking chips.
  • When cutting, spray a sharp knife with non stick cooking spray for easier cutting.
  • Be sure to store leftovers in the refrigerator.

There have been some terrific recipes along the way since the plain rice crispy recipe has come out. This is probably one of tastier ones and it is now a classic. It has been awhile since I have had one, but this is a delicious reminder. Thanks for sharing-your pictures are so tempting.
