Chocolate Scotcheroos, Gluten Free!

If you like scotcheroos, but haven't been able to eat them because of the gluten in Rice Krispies, be sad no longer!  I found a way to make them gluten free and they are delicious, and taste exactly the same.  The recipe is very simple also!  You will need a box of gluten free Crispy Rice:


1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups crispy rice cereal
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 oz. butterscotch chips

Line a 9 x 13 inch pan with foil and grease foil.  The foil is very, very important!  It makes cutting these into bars so much easier.  Measure corn syrup and sugar into a large saucepan.  Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil.  Remove from heat.  Stir in peanut butter; mix well.  Add cereal and stir until well coated.  Press into pan, set aside.

Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together in double boiler over medium heat (or small saucepan over low heat if you don't have a double boiler), stirring constantly.  Spread evenly over cereal mixture.

Let stand until firm.  Remove foil and cut into bars when cool.

Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!!
