Chocolate, Peanut butter, Rice Krispy Treats

aka Rice Krispy Treats on steroids!

Who doesn't love Rice Krispy Treats? It's one of those treats that can take you back to your childhood in a split second. It's summer time and mom doesn't want to bake and make the kitchen hot, so she makes these wonderful treats.

My mom used to make a version that had butterscotch chips in them with chocolate on them. They were called "Scotcharoos" or something like that. The version that I make is a combination of the two. These have that same butterscotch flavor, but they also have peanut butter mixed in. aka Rice Krispy Treats on steroids!!

We used to make these in the cafe and officer Dan would come by everyday and buy two of them. One for him and one for his kids to share. I'm thinking most days that second one never made it home.


The trick to pressing down the Rice Krispy part with out making a huge mess is to wet your hands and then press down. The mixture will not stick to your hands!!

Chocolate, Peanut butter, Rice Krispy Treats

1 cup of sugar
1 cup of corn syrup
1 cup of peanut butter
6 cups of Rice cereal



1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup of butterscotch chips


Heat the sugar and corn syrup until it comes to a boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the peanut butter.

 Stir in the Rice Krispies.

Press the mixture into the13 x 9 pan lined with foil and sprayed with pam. (I use a butter flavor spray) 





Melt chocolate chips and butterscotch chips together; stir once they are melted. I melt them in the microwave, but you can use the double boiler method for melting. Spread on the bars immediately.

Chill in the refrigerator until set. Cut bars and serve.
