Guys, these are peanut butter Rice Krispies treats slathered with chocolate, AKA: Scotcharoos. They are basically the Platonic ideal of dessert–and Warren didn’t know what they were!
This blows my mind on so many levels because he is more of a peanut butter fiend than me (exhibit A: his glorious Peanut Butter Pie that has literally made people fall in love).
(And I should clarify: Warren has eaten scotcharoos before but just never knew what they were called. In his head he just called them Perfection. He was not wrong).
I love how this combo reminds me of my decadently awesome Easy Chocolate Tart (with Nutter Butter Crust!!!) and is essentially just as simple.
While you don’t have to top these bad boys with a pretty marbled candy coating as a nod to your favorite football team, I highly recommend it. Because if there is one truth in life, it’s that marbled anything brings out the best in people.
Don’t worry if you can’t wait to eat these before marbling them. We can still be friends. I do have to warn you that if you bring a batch of these to your next game day party, you will be hailed a conquering hero. Be prepared for your friends to put up a 20 foot statue in your honor (don’t say I didn’t warn you).

- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 12 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
- 6 oz. Vanilla Almond Bark
- gel food coloring
- Put corn syrup and sugar in a large nonstick pot and heat over medium until sugar dissolves (make sure to stir frequently so the sugar doesn't burn). When the sugar dissolves and liquid begins to boil, remove from heat and stir in peanut butter.
- Use a wood spoon to stir in the Rice Krispies until evenly coated. Press mixture into a 9x13 pan coated with cooking spray. Cover top with plastic wrap (to keep your hands from getting stick) and press the treats very firmly into the pan.
- Put chocolate and butterscotch chips in a saucepan over low heat and stir until complete melted. Spread over the treats and set aside to firm. If you want to add a marbled topping, melt Almond Bark according to the package directions and smooth on top of the chocolate layer. Dot bark with food coloring and run a knife or toothpick through the dots to create a marbled effect.
