During my freshman year of college, my roommates and neighbors would often make treats to share with each other. Scotcheroos were among some of our favorites because they’re the perfect combination of peanut butter, butterscotch, and chocolate.

Cook’s Note – Butterfinger Scotcheroos:

  • To speed up the setting process before cutting the bars, you can pop the scotcheroos into the refrigerator for about 15-30 minutes to help them set faster. 
  • Store leftovers in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. Do not store them in the refrigerator, because they will dry out and become hard.
