In a healthy world where we have outlawed sugar, It’s absolutely ok to have a special treat, especially a home made one. Made with love and shared by many. These bad boys are so easy to make. Savor every bite, pure decadence!
Old fashioned scotch a roos
1 cup organic peanut butter (smooth or chunky, you could also use almond butter)
1 cup organic white sugar
1 cup karo syrup (I have not found a healthy alternative:)
Stir and melt together in a pot on the stove top over medium low heat.
Pour mixture over 4 cups rice krispies and stir carefully to coat. Transfer rice krispie mix to a 9 X 11 sheet pan, and smooth out.
Meanwhile, in a double boiler melt:
2 cups chocolate chips (semi sweet or dark will work too)
2 cups butterscotch chips
double boiler ~ fill a pot about 1/2 way with water, place a metal bowl on top and heat water to a simmer, do not allow to boil. To metal bowl, add chocolate chips and butter scotch chips to melt slowly, stir occasionally.
Pour melted chocolate/butterscotch mixture over peanut butter rice krispie mix, smooth over all.
Allow to cool, topping will firm in about 20 minutes. Cut into small squares, enjoy!
