In fact…I just ate one for breakfast! My sister and my mom make scotheroos all of the time, to take to parties or just to have around the house. So, just follow these super easy steps, and we can get cooking and make this classic favorite. You will need sugar, Karo corn syrup, creamy peanut butter, Rice Krispies, chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips.
