Scotchabrownies recipes

Feb 14, 2021Brownies Recipes

Imagine you’re at a social gathering where food is involved.

Someone (probably my mom) has brought Scotcheroos.  And you know there’s inevitably going to be a pan of thick, gooey brownies.

How can anyone be expected to decide between the two perfect bars?

If you’re me, you end up eating half of each, because you feel somehow loyal to the perfect brownie, but also loyal to your mom and the family favorite Scotcheroo, which then results in eating two halves of each. Oops.

Well, dessert bar lovers, buckle up.  I give you today the Scotchabrownie!

…chirp

Okay, bad name.  Scotcheroos get their name from the butterscotch, and there isn’t even any butterscotch in these bars.

However, the original name is Better-than-Crack-Brownies.  Clever, yes, but I try to keep things G-rated around here for all those 5 year old blog readers, so you’ll have to deal with my cheesy name.

Description

Scotchabrownies! A combination of scotcheroos and brownies in one epic dessert bar.



Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 batch brownies
  • 1/2 cup salted peanuts (if don’t have salted, add sea salt)
  • 1 cup chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups
  • 1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies Cereal

  1. Mix brownies and bake for 15-20 minutes in a 9 x 13 pan. They need room on top, so it’s ok if they aren’t very thick.
  2. Sprinkle the peanuts and Reeses cups on top of the brownies after baking. Put them back in the oven for another 5 minutes to get everything a little melty.
  3. In a saucepan, melt the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter, and then stir in the Rice Krispies. Pour this mixture over the top of the brownies.
  4. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Oooh la la. These will change the way you think about brownies and possibly the way your pants fit.  But I have full confidence in your ability to exercise more self control than I did.  And to just exercise in general after eating them.

How many of these could you eat in one minute?  Just kidding.

What’s your favorite party food?

Thanks for reading. Enjoy the Scotchabrownies.
