In the Brown family, few foods are as sacred as cinnamon rolls on special occasions and Scotcharoos for family gatherings. Last night I made scotcharoos. I had forgotten how easy they are!

1 cup sugar

1 cup light corn syrup

1 cup peanut butter 6 cups Rice Krispies

1 cup chocolate chips

1 cup butterscotch chips

Heat sugar and corn syrup in large sauce pan, stirring to dissolve sugar. When mixture begins to boil, remove from heat and add peanut butter, stirring until well blended. Stir in Rice Krispies. Pour in a 9” x 13” pan that has been sprayed with Pam. Mix chips in a bowl and microwave until melted (It took mine about 2-3 minutes, stirring each 30 seconds. Be sure not to over heat or it will scorch the chocolate mixture). Pour over mixture in pan. Let set (I put them in the refrigerator for chocolate mixture to set). Cut and serve.
