Scotch-a-Roos

I think everyone has this recipe but I had to share it just in case. This is my standard quick dessert to take anywhere there are kids and families. I first got this recipe from a friend when I lived in Dallas. Amy was a dear friend - don't talk to her as much these days - but Amy was from Nebraska. At the time - who knew we would end up living in Nebraska and Amy still lives in the Dallas area. If you have never made these - please do - a favorite at all gatherings!

Scotch-a-Roos

1 cup light Karo syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
6 cups rice krispies
12 oz. chocolate chips
12 oz. butterscotch chips

Bring Karo syrup to a boil in a small saucepan and remove from heat. Add 1 cup sugar and stir till melted. Add peanut butter and blend. Pour rice krispies into a large bowl. Pour syrup mixture over cereal and gently stir. Pat into in a lightly greased 9 x 13. Melt both chips together in a microwave bowl. Stir to make sure all chips are melted and pour over cereal mixture. Spread to cover the entire top. Refrigerate just til firm.
