These next few days are dedicated to my Grandmother, who, during the holidays, became a Christmas cookie and confection Queen! Each day I will be posting a different recipe from her green box that she lovingly prepared every year and sent out to her family and friends. To start off, here is my Grandmother's Chocolate Scotcheroos...
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups rice crispies
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
Heat the sugar and corn syrup in a 3 qt saucepan until mixture begins to bubble. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and rice crispies. Press into buttered 13 x 9 pan and let harden. Melt chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in a bowl over hot water. Stir until blended and spread over rice crispies. Chill until firm.
