Chocolate Scotcheroos

One of my brother's girlfriends gave me this recipe a long time ago. It is easy to make and instantly satisfies my desert urge. It says it makes 48 bars but who are we kidding. Really it makes more like 18 bars that disappear way too fast.

Chocolate Scotcheroos

1 c light corn syrup
1 c sugar
1 c peanut butter
6 c rice crispies cereal
1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c butterscotch chips

1. Melt syrup and sugar in a medium sized pan over medium heat. Stir constantly and cook until it begins to boil.
2. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter.
3. Add cereal to pan and mix well.
4. Coat a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray. Pour in cereal mixture. Spray a piece of aluminum foil or wax paper with spray and use it to help push the cereal till it is evenly spread and compressed.
5. Melt the chips in a bowl for a minute and a half in a micowave. Stop the microwave every 30 seconds to stir.
6. Spread the melted chocolate mixture over the cereal mixture.
7. You can wait 8 hours for the chocolate to harden or you can put it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
8. Cut into bars and serve.
