Good news…I found my recipe!

My kids are big fans of scotcharoos.  I never had a recipe that I liked until about a year ago.  The recipe came from the Iowa Farmer Today newspaper.  I made scotcharoos a few times and they were gone almost as fast I made them.  Then…I lost the recipe.  If you saw my method of recipe keeping, that wouldn’t surprise you one bit.  I am TERRIBLE at organizing recipes.  

Anyway….I found the recipe yesterday and made them. 
Don’t they look tempting?  One great thing about the recipe is that it is made entirely in the microwave so no heating up the house by using the stove.

Then my next delemia was what to do with the recipe so I don’t loose it again and wa-la a great idea came to me.  I would blog about it and put the recipe in the blog so the next time I can’t find the recipe I can read my own blog….how is that for logic?

So here is the recipe for you and me both…

2 cups sugar
2 cups white corn syrup
2 cups peanut butter     in a microwavable bowl and heat in the microwave on high for 2 minutes.  Stir then microwave for another minute and stir again.  Pour in 12 cups of rice krispies and stir together.  Spread into a greased jelly roll pan.  In another microwavable bowl melt a pack of chocolate chips and a pack of butterscotch chips together for two minutes.  Stir until chips are melted.  Microwave up to a minute longer if necessary.  Spread on bars.  Let cool.  Cut and serve.

  1. That sounds really good. They used to have pre-made Rice Krispie treat that was like that but they quit making it. I’m going to have to give these a try!

  2. This sounds awesome. I will be trying these this weekend. Thanks for sharing your recipes the last few days because I plan to try them.

  3. What you need to do is put them on the internet into a file. At the end of the year make a recipe book. Make enough copies to give each of your children. you could put them into a photo book on line. When you have all your family favorites plus a few mom hints print out a “photo” book for all of you. This was your family would have all of there favorite family recipes Start asking the kids what are their favorites. .
