Peanut Butter + Butterscotch + Chocolate = Love
Is there anything better than a Scotcheroo? You just can’t beat the peanut butter, butterscotch, and chocolate combination. These are a great dessert bar to make for picnics, birthday parties, potlucks, and just for a tasty treat!
Our signature recipe is made without white sugar and corn syrup. Instead, we’re using honey and a little coconut oil to give you the same great sweetness and texture! Read on to learn how to make them!
For the full recipe, scroll down to the recipe card for a list of ingredients and instructions.
For the Bottom Layer
First, line a 9×13-inch pan with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Then, prepare the bottom layer of the bars by mixing peanut butter, honey, and salt into a large bowl. Mix until smooth and then fold in the rice crispies cereal.
Transfer the rice crispy mixture onto the bottom of the pan and use your hands or a spatula to press the mixture into the pan.
For the Top Layer
Add chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and coconut oil to a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, and continuously stir until melted.
Once melted, remove from heat and pour the chocolate mixture on top of the rice crispy layer. Shake the pan and spread chocolate evenly with a spatula.
Then, place in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
When ready to slice, remove from freezer and let chill for 20 minutes. Slice and enjoy!
How to Serve Scotcheroos

Pro tip: We love to keep our bite-sized scotcheroos in the freezer for an easy dessert that we can just put on a platter and serve!
Turn these bars into balls!
Since we’re huge fans of bite-sized desserts, we tested this recipe by rolling the scotcheroos into balls and dipping them into chocolate. We promise you’ll love it. Here’s how to do it:
Once you’ve mixed together your bottom layer, use a tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop the “dough” into your hands.
Roll the scotcheroos into balls. Sometimes it helps if you get your hands wet. Set them aside.
Make the chocolate layer as directed.
Roll each ball into the melted chocolate and place it onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Freeze for 1 hour to ensure the chocolate has set.
Let the chocolate topping set completely. Then, transfer them into an air-tight container or gallon-size bag and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. If your pan has a lid, feel free to keep the scotcheroos right in the pan for easy storage.
Let pan of healthy scotcheroos set completely, and then cut into individual bars and then transfer into a freezer-safe gallon-size bag. Remove as much air as possible and freeze for up to 3 months.
