Simple and DELICIOUS Reese’s Rice Krispy Treats
My mother always made Scotcheroos when I was a kid and they were a family favorite. I decided to play around a bit with the old stand-by recipe, and the results were fabulous!!
The best part? This delicious treat is so easy, nobody will believe it only took you a few minutes to prepare.
1 1/2 cup Sugar
1 1/2 cup Light Corn Syrup
2 cups Peanut Butter
8 cups Rice Krispy Cereal
1 package (2 cups) semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1 package (2 cups) Peanut Butter Chips
2-3 Reese’s Candy Bars (or 1 cup mini Reese’s cups), crumbled
Place corn syrup and sugar into a large sauce pan. (at least 3 quarts)
Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil.
Turn off heat and stir in peanut butter.
Remove from heat, and add rice cereal. Stir until well coated.
Grease a cookie sheet (with raised sides) and press the cereal mixture into the pan.
Pour chocolate and peanut butter chips onto the rice krispy cereal base, and spread them evenly over the entire mixture.
Turn the oven onto LOW broil and raise the oven rack to the highest position.
Put the treats in the oven, and let them bake for only 2-3 minutes, or until the chocolate and peanut butter chips start to melt.
Remove from oven, and use a rubber spatula to spread the chocolate chips and peanut butter chips until they melt and cover the entire mixture.
Crumble the Reese’s and sprinkle on top of the treats. Allow to cool before cutting into 2” squares.
