This cereal dessert takes a classic treat and re-conceptualizes it using some favorites like chocolate and peanut butter. This snack combines two treats that are staples in the snacking world -- the elements of the 'Reese's Peanut Butter Cup' and the 'Rice Krispie Treat.'

Posie Harwood created a new version of the Rice Krispie treat -- 'Scotcheroos.' The delicious invention takes all the goodies of the 'Rice Krispie' cereal and adds even more delicious elements. Conventionally, Rice Krispie Treats use marshmallows as the basis of holding together the cereal, but this recipe substitutes a mixture of corn syrup, sugar and peanut butter. Using this as a base, the cereal dessert gets coated in a mixture of semisweet chocolate and butterscotch chips to create the perfect innovation to a classic favorite.
