Scotcheroos a.k.a Special K Bars

The debate is do you call these Special K bars, or Scotheroos?

Well I always grew up calling then Special K bars.  We would mainly use Special K cereal to make them but sometimes we'd use something else, cornflakes, or rice crispies.

My husband grew up calling them Scotcheroos.  They always made them with rice crispies.

Well order to be gluten and dairy free, we don't use the butterscotch chips, and it has to be rice crispies.

So a new dilema is what to call them now?!?  There's no Special K, so maybe shouldn't call them that, and there's no butter scotch chips so maybe should call them that....hmmm..  Special Crispies?!
I'll have to think on that one.  We may just refer to our common names, knowing the ingredients are gluten and dairy free.

Scotcheroos a.k.a Special K bars

8 cups rice crispies (gluten free)
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup brown sugar
1 bag chocolate chips

Put the peanut butter, sugar and corn syrup in a bowl and microwave for 2 minutes.  Stir together.  Dump the 8 cups of cereal in a large mixing bowl.  Stir in the melted mixture.  Mix very well.  Flatten into a 9x13 pan.  Melt the chocolate chips and pour over the bars.  Let cool for the chocolate to harden.

Enjoy! :)
