Peanut Butterscotch Rice Krispie Treats

When I found this recipe, these tasty little bars were called "scotcheroos".  Which is a super cute name...but when I brought them in to work and wanted to tell my coworkers to come try some...  Let's just say a grown woman saying the word "scotcheroo" over and over wasn't working out too well.

So these are another peanut-butter infused recipe (sorry Jim), but there's more to them than that.  I remember eating these things as a kid, I just never knew what they were called, and the combination of flavors was delicious and sort of unusual, but hard to pin down exactly if you don't know.

So no you know.  What makes these things so insanely good is a sweet sweet marriage of rice krispies, peanut butter, chocolate, and butterscotch.  Mmmmm.

Seriously...these disappeared.  And SOOO easy to make.  So easy.  You have no excuse not to make them for your next work thing/party/Friday night when you want to eat the entire pan alone, blissfully alone.  I'm not even joking, I could have destroyed that entire pan.  So.  Good.

Peanut Butterscotch Rice Krispie Treats
(adapted from the girl who ate everything)

1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup corn syrup
6 cups Rice Krispies 
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips

In a large saucepan, combine sugar and corn syrup.  Heat over medium/high until sugar dissolves and mixture starts to boil, then remove from heat.  Stir in peanut butter until smooth.  

Add in Rice Krispie cereal and mix until cereal is uniformly covered.  Press the cereal mixture into a buttered 9x13 inch pan.  

In a small saucepan, melt chocolate and butterscotch chips, stirring until smooth.  Spread the chocolate over the Rice Krispie mixture.  Allow to cool completely, then slice into bars.  Try not to eat them all.  Fail miserably.
