Loch Ness Bars

Found this new bar recipe in my Junior League Celebration Cookbook.  It is from the Children's Party Book in Hampton Roads, VA.  It is similar to a Scotch-a-Roo with more chocolate and added marshmallow.  I loved it - we all did but I think we all like Scotch-a-Roos better.  Still another great bar to try!


Loch Ness Bars  (Children's Party Book - Hampton Roads, VA)

1 stick butter
12 oz chocolate chips, divided
1 cup peanut butter
1 (10 oz) pkg miniature  marshmallows
4 1/2 cups crispy rice cereal
1 cup peanuts (optional)
6 oz butterscotch chips

Combine the butter, 6 oz. chocolate chip and the peanut butter in a large saucepan.  Cook over low heat until melted, stirring until smooth.  Add the marshmallows and stir until melted.  Blend in the cereal and peanuts.  Spread in a  13 x 9 inch baking pan.  Chill until firm.  Melt the rest of the chocolate chips and and the butterscotch chips together, blending until smooth.  Spread on the chilled cereal mixture.  Cut into 1 x 2 inch bars.
