This scotcheroos rice krispy treats recipe is seriously such an addicting treat and it only takes a couple of ingredients to make it!
I don’t know what it is about these Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats with butterscotch and chocolate melted on top, or Scotcheroos rice krispy treats as some call them, but I cannot stop eating them if there is a pan in our house. I don’t remember having them growing up, or who taught me to make them as an adult, but I do know that I cannot resist them no matter how old I get.
Because Cade doesn’t love butterscotch I use milk chocolate chips or white and semi chocolate for the topping, and I like to really slather it on in case you couldn’t tell.
Is it mess?
Does it matter?
And it shouldn’t because sometimes a dessert is all about the whole experience, getting sticky, smearing chocolate across your upper lip and licking your fingers clean. Kids are awesome at enjoying dessert. They can really get into it and enjoy every little bite whereas we tend to be so clean and delicate that we are far to worried about avoiding the mess rather than enjoying the flavor.
It’s not just that though, adults want something they can pop in their mouth while finally enjoying a little quiet time without the kids which is why our Scotcheroos Millionaire Nuggets and Reese’s Krispies are some of the most popular recipes on our site.
