Mix it Up Monday

Hey, it's Labor Day! I hope you are having a great time doing whatever it is you are doing. This recipe is perfect for Labor Day, or any other day for that matter. It is quick(15mins!), easy(only 6 ingredients!) and you don't have to turn your oven on. I got this Scotcharoos recipe at a wedding shower, my own almost 1o years ago, and only made it for the first time last year. It looks like Rice Crispy Treats, but oh so much better. Trust me, make this today, it is so good you will kick yourself for not making it sooner.
1c sugar
1c corn syrup (light)
1c peanut butter (I use creamy)
6c Rice Crispies
1/2c chocolate chips
1/2c butterscotch chips

-Heat sugar and corn syrup until sugar is dissolved.
-Add peanut butter and combine.
-Remove from heat.
-Add Rice Crispies.
-Pour into greased 9x13" pan
-Melt chocolate chips and butterscotch chips (I do it separately, but you could do it together)
-Pour melted chips over Rice Crispies, add a little milk to melted chips if needed to spread more easily.
-Let cool at least 30mins

See, how easy is that. The hardest part will be trying not to cram the whole pan into your piehole. Go, make them, now...and have a great holiday!

Stacy, thank you SO much for your offer of pulling recipes for the cookbook from you. I will definitely do so. As an FYI, for these types of cookbooks, so long as we aren't wholesale reproducing existing cookbooks, recipes that have been published are fair game we've learned, so no worries on that front. One request though - each recipe is attributed to its owner/contributor. Can you send me an email with how you'd like to appear (e.g., Stacy X)? Thanks again - I appreciate it!
