Chocolate Scotcheroos are a chocolate-y, puffed rice, cereal snack infused with butterscotch flavor. The peanut butter mixed in gives them a salty-sweet element that makes you want to reach for more! (makes 48 bars)
Hi Everyone! How’s your Spring going? I want to introduce to you Chocolate Scotcheroos. Have you ever heard of this recipe? I hadn’t until Eric told me about this recipe his grandmother and mother used to make when he was little.
This is the 2nd recipe in Eric’s Family Recipe Series. The first one is perfect for the Christmas season, Sand Tart Cookie Recipe which I shared this past December. I have a stack of recipes to work through that Eric’s mom gave to me to share here on the blog. It’s nice to be recording and making food from Eric’s family.
These Chocolate Scotcheroos are so rich and buttery and that’s why I love them. They are like Rice Krispies treats but with a peanut butter, chocolate and butterscotch twist. I can understand why Eric remembered the recipe after all these years. When he told me his memories of eating them as a child, I knew I just had to make them to bring to life some of his family cooking history.
This is one of those recipes that would be perfect with coffee or to make for a sports team. I know I would have loved snacking on these after soccer practice when I was little.
You can cut them to any size you want, I find them the be an ample dose of sweet, so I cut them pretty small in 1 x 1 inch or 1 x 2 inch sizes.
This is one of those really easy stove top recipes making it pretty easy to pull together this yummy treat!
I included a photo of the front and back of the recipe card, hand-written by Eric’s grandmother (below). I can tell it was well-used over the years 🙂
