Butterscotch Rice Krispies® Bars


"This is what I grew up with in lieu of 'scotcheroos'. They are simpler to make and pack a much richer flavor which means when I bite into similar recipes (hoping for this flavor), I am disappointed and want my homemade version!"

  1. Grease bottom and the lower 1 inch of the sides of a 9x13-inch baking dish with butter. Pour cereal into the prepared dish.
  2. Mix butterscotch chips and peanut butter together in a bowl and melt in a microwave oven, stirring every 30 seconds, until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes; pour over cereal and stir until cereal is coated. Use a spatula or the back of a spoon to compact mixture into the dish.
  3. Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 10 minutes.
  4. Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Spread over the top of the bars with a spatula.
  5. Refrigerate bars again until the chocolate is firmed, about 10 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If it is crumbling when you cut it, it may be too cold (if you chilled it in the freezer or outside in the winter), and you may need to warm up a bit. It is not as chewy as other recipes.

It is good with a strong butterscotch flavor that I like.

too crunchy, fell apart when they were cut into squares. There are better recipes out there.

Thought it was wonderful

Super easy to make. I thought the butterscotch flavor was too strong.
