Ingredients

SCOTCHEROO BARS:

  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 5 1.9 ounces Butterfinger candy bars
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup peanut butter

CHOCOLATE-BUTTERSCOTCH TOPPING:

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

MAKE THE SCOTCHEROO BARS:

  • Lightly grease a 9x13-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray, and set aside. In a large bowl add the Rice Krispies cereal and set aside.
  • Unwrap the Butterfingers and place them in a gallon-size ziplock bag. Use the back of a metal spoon or ladle to crush up the candy bars into pieces. Pour the candy bar pieces into a measuring cup. You should have 2 cups of Butterfinger pieces; set aside.
