Chocolate Butterscotcharoo Cookies

My family absolutely loves Chocolate Butterscotcharoo Bars, so when I saw a recipe for Chocolate Butterschotcharoo cookies…I knew that I just had to try them.  And they did not disappoint…no, not even a little tiny bit!  :)  I have to make this recipe when I know that I have lots of people to help eat them or I know I can give away a couple of platefuls.butterscotcharoo cookies

I used the same recipe that I used for the bar cookies, but you substitute Chex cereal for rice crispies and add M & M’s candies.  
These cookies are a cinch to make and they are perfect for a fast summer treat…or if your kids have already started school, they are great for an after school snack!
