    Quick & easy

    Kim H from Coxs Creek, KY

    I needed to use up some butterscotch chips and I'm glad I found this recipe. It was quick and easy to make and my kids loved it. Even my husband thought these were great & he hates peanut butter!

    scotcheroos

    KARALEE SHENFIELD from POST FALLS, ID

    These are very easy to make, as well as tasting very good. There's something about the peanut butter, chocolate, and butterscotch that all taste so good together. One of my husband's favorites - as he likes to just eat butterscotch morsels right out of the bag.

    variation

    ELIZABETH DELINE from Marysville, MI

    my mother has been making a variation of this recipe for more than 40 years; our version only uses 1 cup peanut butter (one, one, one) to 6 cups rice krispies, and then a regular size bag (11, 12) ounce bag EACH of semi sweet chips & butterscotch cups for the "frosting". we also spread the rice krispies out on small jelly roll/cookie sheet; makes thinner treats spread with lots of nestle goodie "frosting"

    In addition to several batches of cookie, these were included for the first day of school "sweet treats". They are easy to make and taste great. They no doubt will be a part of several other school functions. A real keeper too.

    I cheer any time I get to have one of these tasty treats! Probably my favorite bar cookie of all time. The flavor combination- especially the butterscotch/chocolate- just makes these worth making (or eating) any time you get the chance.

    I took these to a meeting that I go to daily along with a batch of chocolate chip bar cookies, the scotcheroos were a HUGE hit. They are richer than I normally like to have my desserts but I even chowed them down. I definitely will be making them again.

    A Husband's Favorite

    TENDERRLEE HUGHES from Parkville, MO

    Butterscotch is one of my husband's favorite flavors. They travel well to work in his lunch box. At home they taste great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and eaten with a fork or spoon. Yum!
