Butterscotch Butterfinger Rice Krispies Treats

Butterfinger Butterscotch Krispies Treats | www.somethingswanky.com

I am a Scotcheroo fanatic. I think peanut butter, butterscotch, and chocolate is possibly the best flavor combination in the world. It’s sort of revived my love for PB + chocolate. After nearly 5 years of dessert blogging, I’ve been a little burnt out on the peanut butter chocolate circuit for a little while. But I’ve rediscovered the addition of butterscotch this year, and it’s rekindled my love for the classic duo (well, now a trio)!

Most recently I’ve made Scotcheroo Banana Bread and Scotcheroo Muddy Buddies. They’re killer, so be sure to click over and check those babies out.

Today’s recipe is a little closer to a traditional Scotcheroo in that it’s a bar. But these aren’t just any ol’ scotcheroo bars. These are rice krispie treats teeming with with gooey marshmallow, peanut butter, butterscotch, and best of all– big, fat, Butterfinger pieces!

Butterscotch Butterfinger Rice Krispies Treats

Yield: 9

Ingredients

  • 10 ounces miniature marshmallows
  • 5 cups rice krispies cereal
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped Butterfinger candy bars*
  • 1/4 cup melted chocolate for drizzling

Instructions

  1. Place the marshmallows, peanut butter, and butterscotch chips in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute. Mix well until everything is melted and smooth.
  2. Use a large rubber spatula to mix in the cereal. Add the Butterfinger candy pieces (it's ok if the chocolate melts a little, but try to stir as little as possible to keep it from melting completely).
  3. Scrape the mixture into a parchment lined or well greased 8x8 baking dish. Gently press flat.
  4. Drizzle melted chocolate over top. Let chocolate cool completely and harden before cutting into squares to serve.

Notes

*feel free to add more Butterfinger candy if you'd like!
