Chewy Peanut Butter Butterscotch Squares

Whew! That is a long name for something so simple. I have seen some people refer to these as "Scotcheroos". That is certainly shorter but I am not committed to it yet....

I made these a couple weeks ago and instantly became addicted. I had to make another batch yesterday because I couldn't get them out of my head. This rarely happens to me.

I suggest you try them at once!

6 cups rice krispies
1 cup sugar
1 cup honey
1 cup peanut butter

12 oz. bag butterscotch chips
12 oz. bag semisweet chocolate chips

Measure rice krispies into a big bowl. Set aside.
Add sugar and honey to a medium saucepan. Heat pan over medium heat until just boiling. Remove from heat. Add peanut butter and stir until all incorporated. Pour mixture over the rice krispies, stirring until all coated.
Pour into greased 9X13 pan and smooth out the top with your hands (carefully, it may still be hot!).
Melt the butterscotch and chocolate chips together, stirring until totally combined. Quickly pour over the (slightly cooled) rice krispies layer and use a rubber spatula to spread the chocolate to all the edges and smooth it out.
Refrigerate for them to set up faster, but they will set up if left on the counter for a couple hours, as well.



  1. Omg, that looks so good. Need to make it this week. :D

    1. These are my most dangerous dessert to have own personal kryptonite!
