No Bake Scotcheroos …chewy, crispy peanut butter bars that are topped with a chocolate and butterscotch ganache.

One of my favorite childhood desserts is Scotcheroos. I was actually shocked when I looked through my archives and hadn’t posted the recipe before. This recipe is a classic that everyone always loves!

I think my mom first found it on the box of Rice Krispies several years ago. For this recipe, I simply just cut their recipe in half and added a teaspoon of vanilla. I did this mainly because we usually don’t need a WHOLE 9×13 pan. I mean, we could eat them… but we really shouldn’t. ;) And a little vanilla makes everything better in my opinion. But if you’re making them for a crowd, feel free to double (or even triple) this recipe.

Another fun way to make these Scotcheroos, is to turn them into mini truffles. Simple roll about 2 Tablespoons into a ball and then dip into the chocolate with a fork. Then allow to them harden on wax paper. You could even add a stick to the top, before dipped to make more of a cake pop looking dessert.
