I had every intention of putting a meatball recipe on here today. But I've spent a good chunk of my afternoon daydreaming about Scotcheroos. I'm not entirely sure why, it's been quite awhile since I've eaten these. I just may have to do something about that. Soon.
This is, essentially, a dressed-up Rice Krispie Treat. Believe me, I love a plain 'ole Rice Krispie Treat. Especially because they are Brad's signature dessert. Let's be honest, shall we? It's the only dessert Brad makes. And he makes 'em fierce. He has a couple "secrets" that make me grin, but it wouldn't be fair to divulge that without his permission. And he always leaves a bunch of the mix stuck on the side of the bowl and lets me eat that with a spoon. If that doesn't shout from the rooftops how much he loves me, I don't know what would.
Anyway, these are a super rich, extra yummy, chocolate coated way to get your snap, crackle and pop...
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup light Karo Syrup
~in a large saucepan, melt together over medium heat. remove from heat and stir in:
6 cups Rice Krispies
~press evenly into a lightly buttered 9x13 pan.
In a microwave, melt together:
12 oz. chocolate chips
12 oz. butterscotch chips
~stir until smooth, then pour over top of cereal mixture. spread evenly.
Let cool until chocolate is set. If you make it that long, you have a self-control rating of "Superior". I do not.
