Chocolate Scotcheroos Rice Krispies Treats Recipe

I admit...I love chocolate and just about anything that contains chocolate as an ingredient. Don't you? Well, if you do, you're going to love this classic recipe that has been around for many years! The first time I enjoyed one of this Scotcheroos was about 25 years ago and I've been enjoying them every since.

While I like to call them Scotcheroos my mother calls them Chocolate Rice Krispies Treats. Whatever you like to call...they sure are good and they're super easy to make. Kids and adults love them and they are great little treats to make for all of those bake sales and birthday party treats that you need to make throughout the year.

Chocolate Rice Krispies Treats Recipe

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup Karo syrup
1 cup smooth peanut butter
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
6 oz. bag Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

In a medium saucepan bring the granulated sugar and the Karo syrup to a full boil. Remove saucepan from heat. Stir in the smooth peanut butter until melted and blended. Stir in the Rice Krispies cereal until everything is well-combined.

Butter a 9" by 13" glass baking dish. Use a large spoon to spoon the above mixture into the glass baking dish...pressing it down to form an even layer. Melt the semi-sweet chocolate morsels in a plastic or glass bowl in your microwave oven at 15 second intervals, stirring in between each rotation. Repeat this process until they are completely melted. Remove from microwave and spoon the melted chocolate over the top of the Rice Krispies...in an even layer. Let completely cool.

Once it has all cooled, cut into bars and store in an airtight container.

All kids seem to enjoy Rice Krispies treats and to add chocolate to them makes them much more delicious. I think I would add 2 more ounces of chocolate when I make them!
