I got this recipe from a blog called Food Mafia, I made this for the super bowl.  They were really easy and yummy. I did make them in individual cookie size. Both kids and adults loved them.

Chex Scotcharoos


  • •6 cups Chex cereal
  • •1 cup light corn syrup
  • •1 cup sugar
  • •1½ cups peanut butter
  • •2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • •2 cups butterscotch chips
  • •½ cup peanut butter
  • •1 teaspoon vanilla


  • 1.Butter a large bowl, and measure out 6 cups of Chex cereal. Set aside. Butter a 9x13 dish, OR line a baking sheet with wax paper if you would like freeform scotcharoo's like the ones I made that are pictured.
  • 2.In a small saucepan, combine the corn syrup and sugar over medium heat. Once boiling, immediately remove from heat and stir in 1½ cups of peanut butter. Pour over cereal and fold together. Pour cereal into the 9x13 dish, or use a large cookie scoop to drop cereal onto wax paper, and use your hands to press together and form them.
  • 3.Using a microwave safe dish or a double boiler, melt together chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, ½ cup of peanut butter and vanilla. If microwaving, heat in 10 second intervals, stirring in between to prevent the chocolate from burning.
  • 4.Once smooth, pour over cereal, or scoop onto the piles you have created.
  • 5.Allow to cool completely at room temperature.


I only used 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, 1 cup butterscotch chips and 1/4 cup peanut butter. This was plenty of chocolate and I even ad some left.
