I'm finally back! It has been a crazy, whirlwind few months. The main source of craziness being that we moved across the country to live with my in-laws while our house is still on the market in Ohio (anyone looking for a great house?). Thankfully my husband's new job took us to the West where our family lives and so we can live with family in this limbo state?!? Anyways--so in the midst of moving and then getting settled, it's taken a little while to get our internet up and running and to get back into the swing of actually cooking instead of having our dinner mainly consist of some form of drive-thru.

So I'm excited to get back into the swing of blogging and reading all of your great blogs! I have been wanting to make this recipe since a friend brought it to our New Year's party. But be warned....they are extremely addictive! I made one pan with my sister and after we all devoured it I came home and made another pan. They are really soft and chewy and have the perfect amount of peanut butter. And then you add the yummy butterscotch chocolate icing to the top and it really is the perfect combination.

Scotch-a-roos from Mykette

1 C corn syrup
1 C granulated sugar
6 C Rice Krispies
1 C peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

1 C chocolate chips (I used 1 1/2-2 C)
1 C butterscotch chips (also used 1 1/2-2 C)

1. Combine corn syrup and sugar in a large pot. Cook over medium heat to a boil; boil one minute.

2. Remove from heat and add peanut butter and vanilla. Add rice krispies. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan.

3. Chill. Melt chips in bowl in microwave and spread over treats. Chill again until chocolate sets up. Enjoy!!!

Mmmm, they look and sound delicious! We just went through a move in November, so I know how crazy it can get. Hope you're able to sell your house.
