Chocolate Scotcharoos

These were a favorite especially for the kids. I think Jaden would have eaten the whole pan if I would have let him. I used all chocolate chips instead of the butterscotch and really liked it that way. I know I have made these with corn flakes and they work just as well. I got the recipe from www.mykitchencafe.blogspot.com

Chocolate Scotcharoos
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
8-10 cups rice krispies
6 oz. chocolate chips
6 oz. butterscotch chips

Melt butter. Add corn syrup and sugar. Bring just to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter. Add rice krispies and mix well. Press mixture into large baking sheet (11X17). Melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips in the microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir. Continue microwaving for 30 second spurts until chips are melted. Spread chips on top of rice krispie mixture. Let chocolate set. Cut into squares.
