One of my guilty pleasures are those dang scotcheroos peanut butter rice krispy treats (although we normally skip the butterscotch chips in the chocolate topping). I cannot resist those darn things. And it’s like the easiest, cheap-o dessert, especially for someone who makes their living writing recipes, but I love them.

 

No, I adore them.

So the other day when Cade informed me that we had Chex that needed to be used I thought, Scotcheroos Chex Mix!!!

 

I guess you all pretty much know about the peanut butter goodness that is scotcheroos with that yummy chocolate topping so there really isn’t any need in telling you how much you’ll love it as a snack. Those chex pieces are the perfect carrier for all of that peanut butter and then just add a drizzle of chocolate!
