Rated as 3.67 out of 5 Stars

"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!"

Directions

  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.

Footnotes

  • 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.

Doesn't stay together at all :( You have to eat it with a spoon. But it tastes good!

Made no changes, delicious!!!

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.
