Reese’s Overload Scotcheroos

Reese’s Overload Scotcheroos


  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 7 cups Reese’s Puffs Cereal
  • 1 cup Miniature Reese’s Cups
  • 1 cup Reese’s Pieces
  • 1 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips


  1. 1. Place corn syrup and sugar into 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil.
  2. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter. Mix well.
  3. Add Reese's Puffs cereal. Stir until well coated.
  4. Press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Set aside.
  5. Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Spread evenly over cereal mixture. Let stand until firm. Cut into 2 x 1-inch bars when cool.


My brother loves Scotcheroos, and these bars were inspired by him :)
I got to thinking that Reese’s Puffs would be awesome in place of the rice krispies.
And then to take out the butterscotch completely and make it 100% PB and Chocolate.
Which would necessitate the addition of Reese’s Cups and Reese’s Pieces.
They were kind of awesome.
Kind of really awesome. You’re gonna love them.

    I don’t think there’s such a thing as Reese’s “overload.” These sound amazing!!!

    Based on the picture, you also add the candies when you add the cereal. Might want to add that to the instructions for clarification :)

    I love Scotcheroos but these sound better.

    You rock my world Ashton! These are so fabulous. I might have to buy a box of that cereal; however it would probably never make it into dessert. :) And I love the new look!

    I’ve never tried that cereal before but if it tastes anything like the candy, I’m Game!!

    I’m betting my boys would devour these before I even got a chance to taste them.
