Triple Chocolate Scotcheroos and Krema’s peanut butter winners

The winners chosen by are:
Kimi D: “is it considered a recipe if i just eat it by the spoonful? if not, then i don’t think anything can beat a PB&J with milk.”
Hillary: “Peanut Butter and Nutella with some mini marshmallows on a graham cracker”


I was drooling as I read through all of your favorite peanut butter indulgences. Mentally I added about twenty things that I now want to make with peanut butter. Since I made two healthy peanut butter recipes in the last post it was definitely time for something a little more naughty. It kind of defeats the purpose of using all natural peanut butter in a sugary treat like this, but hey, we gotta meet in the middle somewhere.
Scotcheroos are one of my all time favorite desserts. They have three of my favorite ingredients: chocolate, peanut butter, and butterscotch all rolled into one. The original Scotcheroos are always good, but this twist on them was a winner too with the addition of Nutella and chocolate rice crispies. A sprinkle of sea salt adds a hint of salt and brings out all of the flavors. I should not be left alone with a plate of these…

Triple Chocolate Scotcheroos
Source: Cassie Craves; original recipe by David Lebovitz

1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (like Crazy Richard’s PB; you could use regular peanut butter here too)
1/2 cup Nutella
6 cups crisp chocolate-flavored rice cereal
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch-flavored chips
sea salt (optional)

1. Butter or spray a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.
2. In a large saucepan (at least 6 quarts) over medium heat, bring the sugar and corn syrup to a full boil. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and Nutella, then mix the rice cereal in until completely coated. Press the mixture into the greased pan, making sure the top is smooth.
3. Melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips together in a clean, dry bowl set over a double boiler or microwave, stirring gently until smooth and well-blended. Spread over the rice cereal mixture and cool until set. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired.
