Chex Scotcharoos

Chex Scotcharoos - the perfect combination of chocolate, peanut butter and butterscotch

It’s no secret that I love cookies.  They’re pretty much the perfect dessert in my opinion.  You don’t need a plate and you can walk around while eating them.  I’d say it’s a win win.

I pinned these Chex Scotcharoos some time ago because they sounded delicious.  I love Scotcharoo Cookies and this seems like a perfect twist on them.  I’m so glad I did!  They are delicious!  The semi crunchiness of the Chex and the delicious combination of peanut butter, butterscotch and chocolate.  Yum!

Chex Scotcharoos - the perfect combination of chocolate, peanut butter and butterscotch

Chex Scotcharoos

Ingredients

  • 6 cups Chex cereal
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1½ cups peanut butter
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips (1 bag)
  • 2 cups butterscotch chips (1 bag)
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, measure the Chex cereal.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the corn syrup and sugar over medium heat. Once boiling, immediately remove from heat and stir in 1½ cups of peanut butter. Pour over cereal and fold together.
  3. Carefully scoop out some of the Chex mixture and place on waxed paper.
  4. Using a microwave safe dish or a double boiler, melt together chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, ½ cup of peanut butter and vanilla. If microwaving, heat in 10 second intervals, stirring in between to prevent the chocolate from burning.
  5. Place a "plop" of the chocolate over the Chex balls.
  6. Allow to cool at room temperature.
  7. Enjoy!
