Ingredients:  
1 cup Karo light corn syrup
1 cup sugar

Directions:
Directions:
Heat corn syrup and sugar in the top of a double boiler,
stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves completely and
mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat. Add peanut butter
and stir together. Pour this mixture over the Rice Krispies
(use a BIG bowl) and stir until the cereal is all gooey and
coated. Spread mixture into a 13x9x2 pan and pack down to
form a flat top. Place in refrigerator to cool.

Heat chocolate and butterscotch chips in the top of a double
boiler until melted and blended. Pour this chocolate mixture
over the top of the Rice Krispies mixture, spread thin, and
return the pan to the refrigerator to set.

Note: the original recipe calls for coating the pan with a
vegetable cooking spray, but I've never done so.

Personal Notes:
I found the original Scotcheroo recipe that
Mom cut out of a Kellogg's coupon book. Not sure of the
year, but I remember eating these when I was really little.
Store in the fridge, but be sure to warm them to room
temperature for cutting and eating.
