Tasty, No Bake Valentine’s Treats – Scotcharoos

Share this:

It’s a midwest tradition to make scotcharoos, and they are the perfect no bake treat! If you grew up here in the Midwest, you probably saw scotcharoos at gas stations, sports games, or when someone brought them as a treat to class!

Easy No-Bake Scotcharoos Valentines Treats

One of the best parts about scotcharoos is that they are so easy to make and take very little time.

You need rice crispie treats, sugar, light corn syrup, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and peanut butter.

First, you melt one cup sugar with one cup light corn syrup in a pan until lightly bubbling. Turn heat off and mix in one cup peanut butter. Combine until mixture is smooth and creamy.

In a separate mixing bowl, measure 6 cups of Rice Crispies and mix in the peanut butter and sugar mixture. Combine well until all Rice Crispies are completed coated.

Add parchment paper to a baking dish and grease with spray or butter. Add Rice Crispie mixture and press flat and firmly into the bottom of the pan.

In a microwave safe bowl, add 1 cup chocolate chips with 1 cup butterscotch chips and carefully melt. Stirring the mixture frequently to keep the chocolate from burning. If your microwave has a melt function, use that.

Once the chocolate butterscotch mixture is a smooth, creamy texture, pour over Rice Crispie pressed into pan. Use a rubber spatula to smooth the chocolate getting a nice even layer of chocolate on top.

This is where I added the sprinkles to make them holiday themed. After, you will want to let them cool so they stay together when you cut them. Either cut them into squares, or use metal cookie cutters to cut them into fun shapes – like these heart shaped ones!
