source: Slice of Chic
I wouldn’t exactly call this recipe original. It’s actually a compilation of two recipes, that I’ve mixed and matched together to come up with something my family loves. The recipes are Chocolate Scotcheroos and Homemade Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats (no longer available except in archives).
5 cups Rice Krispie cereal
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 – 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
disposable 9×13 baking pan
Place sugar and corn syrup in a medium pan.Stirring frequently, heat till sugar is melted and mixture just begins to boil.Remove from heat and add peanut butter. Mix well.
Stir in cereal and mix till cereal is coated with the syrup.
Lightly cover a baking pan with Pam or other spray coating. Transfer cereal mixture to pan and spread evenly.
Melt chocolate in small pan over low heat. Stir well till completely melted. Quickly spread chocolate over cereal.
Cut into bars.
Serve immediately or refrigerate for several hours.
