SCOTCHEROOS RECIPE - NYT COOKING



Scotcheroos Recipe - NYT Cooking image

Originally printed on the Rice Krispies box in the 1960s, Scotcheroos are Rice Krispies treats minus the marshmallow but with gobs of peanut butter, chocolate and butterscotch chips. Use either natural, unsweetened peanut butter or the more conventional stuff. Either will work just fine, with the natural version tasting a tad less sweet. For a twist, you could also swap the corn syrup for honey, golden syrup or a mix of both. Bittersweet chocolate, as opposed to semisweet, helps to balance the sweetness. A sprinkling of flaky salt and crushed peanuts aren’t traditional, but they look as good as they taste.

Total Time 20 minutes

Yield 24 bars

Number Of Ingredients 11

Cooking spray
8 cups (200 grams) puffed rice cereal
1 1/2 cups peanut butter, well-mixed natural or conventional (see Tip)
1 cup (201 grams) granulated sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter, salted or unsalted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Kosher salt
1 1/4 cups (215 grams) chopped bittersweet chocolate or chocolate chips
1 cup (166 grams) butterscotch chips
Flaky salt and crushed peanuts, for sprinkling (optional)

Steps:

  • Line a 13-by-9-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on two sides. Spray the parchment with cooking spray. Measure out the cereal and peanut butter. You want to have them ready before cooking the sugar.
  • In a large pot (large enough to hold the cereal) combine the sugar, corn syrup and butter. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring only for the first 30 seconds or so to combine the mixture.
  • Once the bubbles have reached about an inch from the edge of the pot (or 170 degrees on an instant-read thermometer), cook for 90 seconds more until it reaches about 235 degrees. Remove from the heat.
  • Immediately stir in the peanut butter, vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon salt until combined. Add the rice cereal, and stir until everything is evenly coated. Transfer to the prepared pan, and use an offset spatula to flatten the mixture into an even layer. Let cool completely.
  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat the chocolate and butterscotch chips in 30-second bursts, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Spread over the top of the bars, and sprinkle with salt and peanuts, if using. Let the chocolate set at room temperature.
  • Lift out using the paper overhang and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into bars to serve.

Imagine if Rice Krispies treats had a run-in with a jar of peanut butter and then doused with a melted medley of chocolate and butterscotch chips.

Categories     Dessert    Sweets

Total Time 0S

Number Of Ingredients 6

6 cups puffed rice cereal, like Rice Krispies
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup creamy peanut butter (see Recipe Note)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips

Steps:

  • Get everything ready: These bars certainly aren't difficult, but once you start, it's best to keep going. If you have stop in the middle, the sauce could overcook or harden too much to stir into the cereal. First, line the baking pan with parchment and coat it evenly with nonstick spray. Then, measure the puffed rice into a large mixing bowl. Measure the sugar and corn syrup into a medium saucepan and have the peanut butter ready close by. Combine the chocolate and butterscotch chips in a heatproof bowl and set aside.
  • Bring the sugar and corn syrup to a boil: Set the pan with sugar and corn syrup over medium heat. Stir to form a sandy paste, then stop stirring. Let the mixture come to a boil — as it warms, the sugar will dissolve and the mixture will become clear. Once the mixture is at a full boil with bubbles covering the whole surface, remove the pan from heat.
  • Stir in the peanut butter: While the syrup is still very hot, stir in the peanut butter to form a thick, glossy sauce.
  • Pour the peanut butter sauce over the puffed rice: Pour a little sauce over the puffed rice, stir it in, then pour a little more. Continue until all the sauce has been added. Continue to gently stir the puffed rice another few seconds until the cereal is evenly coated and no pockets of sauce remain.
  • Transfer the cereal mixture to the baking dish: Butter your hands or spray with a little oil, and press the mixture firmly and evenly into the pan.
  • Melt the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips: Melt the chips in the microwave on high for 30 seconds, then stir. Repeat until just a few tiny lumps remain. Stir until the last lumps are dissolved. (In my microwave, this took three 30-second intervals, or 1 1/2 minutes total.)
  • Pour the chocolate over the cereal bars: Use a spatula to scrape every last bit of melted chocolate onto the bars. Smooth into an even layer with the back of the spatula.
  • Cool until the chocolate becomes firm: Let the bars firm up for a few hours. Once the chocolate has firmed, cover the bars until ready to serve. On a hot day, you may need to put the bars in the fridge for the chocolate topping to set.
  • Cut into individual bars: If your bars have been refrigerated, let them come to room temperature for a half hour or so before cutting or serving. Lift the bars out of the pan by lifting on the parchment. Use a sharp knife to cut the bars into 20 squares.
  • Storing the bars: Scotcheroos will keep for at least a week or longer, and are fine served at any time. Keep the bars in an airtight container at room temperature. If it's warm and the chocolate is softening too much, you can store the bars in the fridge; just let them come to room temperature before serving or they will be brittle.
