What is a Scotcheroo you might ask? A Scotcheroos is a fancy Rice Krispies treat that has melted chocolate and butterscotch chips on top of them. These no baked treats are just as much of a hit in my house as my No Bake Chocolate Cookies are.
Chocolate Covered Rice Krispie Treats
Scotcheroos are simple to make but not simple on taste. These yummy treats will have your family asking you to make them all the time. Let me show you how I make them.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the peanut butter. Make sure the peanut butter is completely melted before adding the Rice Krispies. Mix all the ingredients until well combined.
Press the base of the treats into a 9×13 baking dish.
Melting Chocolate and Butterscotch
All you need for a double boiler is have a heat safe bowl and a saucepan. Make sure the bowl is a bit bigger than the saucepan. You want the bottom of the bowl getting the heat from that water that is in the saucepan.
Add enough water into the saucepan then place the bowl on top of the pan. Add the chocolate and butterscotch chip into the bowl. Turn the heat to the burner on to medium-low.
As the water come to a boil it heats the chocolate and butterscotch up, they will start to melt.
Once the chocolate and butterscotch are fully melted pour over the cereal mixture that is in the 9×13 baking dish and spread evenly.
Let stand until the chocolate has firmed, cut and serve.
An angled icing spatula helps spread the melted chocolate evenly over the cereal mixture. Making it easier to cover all the cereal mixture.
When measuring out corn syrup if you coat your measuring cup with cooking spray. The corn syrup will come out of the measuring cup easier.
Super hot water sprayed in the measuring cup helps make clean up easier. I do this right away so there is no time for the corn syrup to get stuck to the cup.
Placing the prepared treat into the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes helps set the chocolate up. I don’t recommend leaving them in the refrigerator for too long or they will become very hard.
