Chex Scotcharoos

Well, it is down to crunch time now!  Are we all ready for the big holiday? I have a fun recipe today for Chex Scotcharoos!

 These are perfect if you need a quick no-bake treat for your Christmas party, for neighbor gifts, or for a yummy dessert.
dsc_8869My family loves Chocolate Butterscotcheroos that are made with rice crispies.   But the individual Chex Scotcharoos bites are easy to pick up and are smaller in size than the bars.

Ingredients
  1. 6 cups Chex cereal
  2. 1 cup light corn syrup
  3. 1 cup sugar
  4. 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  5. 1 cup chocolate chips-either dark or milk chocolate
  6. 1 cup butterscotch chips
  7. 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  8. 1 teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. Measure the 6 cups of Chex cereal into a large bowl. Set aside. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in 1 1/2 cups of peanut butter. Stir until PB is completely melted. Pour over cereal and fold together. Scoop into individual mounds on the parchment paper.
  3. Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips and 1/2 cup peanut butter together in a microwave safe dish. Heat in 10 second intervals, stirring in between to prevent the chocolate from burning.

 Butterscotcharoos are one of my favorite treats.  It seems like when I make a pan of them…I tend to eat too many!  :)  So therefore, these individual portions are wonderful because they are bite sized.  I can store them away in the freezer or give them to the kids, and grandkids!chex scotcharoosDo you need a quick, easy treat?  You might just have all of the ingredients that you need, to make Chex Scotcharoos!  So make someone happy today!

    1. Jacque, Thank you so much for your kind comment. I hope that your holidays are filled with love and peace and that you get to spend some time with the ones you love! Merry Christmas to you!

  1. I’d love to try these. Wish I could figure in a way to get to the store yet again for the Chex and then find the time to make them. Maybe next year. My family is still stuck on your Salted Caramel Rice Krispie treats………I’m not allowed in their house (for any occasion) without the secret password……….”Yes, I brought them”. (the pan of krispie treats) I kid you not. LOL

    Wishing you a yours a most Blessed Christmas.
