Scotcharoos



Every Easter/ Spring Break, we have to have Scotcharoos. I got this recipe years ago from my sister-in-law, Ada and we've been making it every Easter since.
2cups sugar
2 cups light corn syrup
2 cups peanut butter
1 13oz box rice krispies
1 pkg. chocolate chips (semi sweet)
1 pkg. butterscotch chips
Butter two large sided cookie sheets ( you know the kind all Mormons have) (or you can use two 9 x 13. The scotcharoos will be thicker.)
Combine sugar and syrup in a large pan (needs to be at least 3 qt) Cook until mixture begins to bubble, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; Stir in peanut butter. Mix well. Add cereal and stir until your arm falls off. Press into the prepared pans. Melt the chips in the microwave (don't burn it) Stir and spread over the cereal bars. Cool in fridge until topping is set. Cut and eat with family and friends on your Easter picnic!

Oh my goodness Kay these are my FAVORITE! I would look forward every year to spending Easter with you guys and eating your Scotcharoos. Sometimes Shonna & I would sneak up to the kitchen and steal one when we weren't supposed to. :) Yum yum yum!!! Because of you I make these all the time and always get rave reviews!

The first time I had scotcharoos was when I had Taylor. You sent a batch with Mom and Dad and man were they a treat! I've loved them ever since.

Blake and I just made these last night; they are to die for. It's hard not sneaking over to the fridge and snagging one today. I've done well though, it's 3:00pm and I've only eaten 2 small ones. So yummy! Oh and love Mindy's comment, so true.

Brings back such happy memories of all of those Easters at and with the Hintons. My kids couldn't wait to get there every year!
