OH, WOW…if you like Rice Crispy Treats, you are going to LOVE Scotcharoos. My wonderful Mother-in-Law gets credit for this delicious recipe. These gooey goodnesses are a staple at our family gatherings….and rightly so. They please the adults as much as the kids {try to have just one- it won’t happen…you will be baaaaack.}

Here’s “Grandma Puppies” with our little guy. Oh, I just love her…she is the kind of grandma that has a bedroom set aside at her home for our kids….with bunk beds. She reads, paints, plays catch, lets em stay up late, makes finger jell-o, captures the little things they say, brags with photos, catches lightning bugs, and makes….Scotcharoos.  Thanks for being “that” kind of Grandma, Kathy. Our kids are truly blessed. I Love you!!!!

  1. These look wonderful! Can’t wait to try them – thank you for sharing! P.S. I do love rice krispie treats so very much…might have found a new favorite!

  2. What an easy and yummy idea of a dessert! They look like pumped up Rice Krispy treats!! Thanks for sharing your mother-in-law’s delicious recipe. 🙂

  3. oh my word! this recipe has my husband’s name written all over it….he loves Rice krispies, choc., and PB….time to break out the cereal box!

  4. These are a favorite in our family also. My sister brings them to all gatherings & has to be sure to have two pans in order to accommodate everyones desire for seconds or thirds.

  5. That looks so delicious !! Thank you very much for the recipe.

  6. Janelle, do these turn out chewy or “hard”? Also, how do you store them? Thinking of making tomorrow for a church social on Sunday. Thanks!

    These were definitely more chewy and less dry than the “standard” version of this recipe I’ve seen elsewhere. Much better using this recipe, which calls for 1.5 c of peanut butter instead of just 1 c. Thanks for the recipe!

  8. These look divine!! 🙂 I’m going to try making them today… How long do you boil?


  1. […] One of my children’s {and yes, mine too} favorite “treats” are Rice Krispie treats. I’ve shared with you my favorite recipe {they are huge, buttery, and ohhh so gooey}, I’ve shared the peanut butter kind {gluten and dairy-free}, I’ve shared with you rainbow style, and the ever so amazing Scotcharoos.
