All I can say is that these Triple Chocolate Scotcheroos are OUT OF THIS WORLD DELICIOUS! These little gems are packed full of chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate, a little peanut butter, some butterscotch chips and a surprise ingredient that many people go gaga over, including myself.....Nutella! Cocoa rice krispies, peanut butter and nutella mix together to form a sweet and chewy, crunchy and chocolately base and then it gets topped with smooth and dreamy chocolate and butterscotch chips that combine so perfectly together.
Thank-you David Lebovitz for this great little concoction, you are a genius!
He took a classic scotcheroo and in my opinion, amped them up about 10 notches! And, I am not trying to dis plain ol' scotcheroos because I am a big fan of them, but, I must say these triple chocolate ones are incredible, outstanding, chocolately, mouth-watering delicious (my mouth is getting watery right now!) and they made me really, really happy.....I was in pure bliss. Who knew that such a simple dessert could be so fantastic? You need to try these, ASAP!!! I am not kidding, especially if you are a chocolate lover like me : )! Have I convinced you yet? I don't think I can use anymore words to describe how fabulous these are!
Triple Chocolate Scotcheroos: (David Lebovitz, adapted by me)
-1 cup sugar
-1 cup light corn syrup
-1/2 cup peanut butter
-1/2 cup Nutella
-6 cups crisp chocolate-flavored rice cereal (Cocoa Rice Krispies Cereal)
-1 1/4 cups milk chocolate chips
-1 1/4 cups butterscotch chips
1. Butter or spray a 9x13-inch baking pan.
2. In a large saucepan (at least 6 quarts) over medium heat, bring the sugar and the corn syrup to a full boil. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and Nutella, then mix the rice cereal in until completely coated. Press the mixture into the greased pan, making sure the top is smooth.
3. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips together in 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until smooth and well-blended, about 1 minute and 30 seconds. Spread over rice cereal mixture and cool until set.
David Lebovitz describes these as pretty intense and on the sweet side, so bite-sized portions are in order, but, I could have eaten the whole pan by myself!
