scotcharoos

I know what you are thinking…

is she really posting a recipe for these?

Here’s the thing, most of the time when I’m writing these posts, especially the baking ones, I have lulu in mind.  Someday she’s going to want to know how to make all of her favorite things and these are definitely one of her favorite things.  It’s also spring break this week so I’m making life easy for myself.

So I give you…

scotcharoos

1 cup sugar

1 cup light corn syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

5 cups corn flakes

1 cup creamy peanut butter

5 oz. dark chocolate chips

5 oz. butterscotch chips

 

Butter the bottom and sides of an 8″ x 11″ (or similar size) pan.

In a large saucepan, heat sugar and syrup, stirring gently until sugar dissolves and just bubbles at the edges of the pan.  Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla.  Add the cornflakes and stir to coat them.  Use a rubber spatula to press mixture into the prepared pan.

Using a pyrex measuring cup or other microwave safe dish, heat chips for one minute and stir well to melt the chips.  Spread over the cornflake mixture.  Let set on counter to cool because if they sit in the fridge too long they become too hard to eat.
