I saw the recipe on Pinterest and that was it. Right then and there, I knew they were going to be my next thing.

Chex Scotcheroos Recipe from Pretty Plain Janes

Note: If you want to skip dipping the bottoms and just top the Scotcheroos with the “frosting”, use 1 cup chocolate chips, 1 cup butterscotch chips, 1/4 cup peanut butter and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.

    these are so yummy! I make these with Special K cereal. After the boiling step and adding peanut butter, I pour this over the cereal and put the mixture into a 9×13 pan. Then I pour the “icing ” on top and smooth it out. Yum!
    I will try it with the chex cereal but scooping each one out takes to much time:)

      I’ve made them with Chex and Life cereal. They both work well. I agree that the 9 x 13 pan is an easier way to go, but I like the presentation of the individually scooped. Happy Baking!
