Cookie of the Week

I haven't done cookie of the week on the blog in a while. We're finally getting into a nice routine now that we're settled down and I'm back into more a cookie routine.

This week, the cookie of the week is all Miss T's fault for mentioning these to me...



I've made these before, but apparently Dr. Mad Scientist has never eaten them (crazy, yes, I know).

I packed one in his lunch today.

At about 1:00 p.m. I get an email from him:

OMG! These rice krispie!!!

So apparently in addition to being very tasty, Scotcheroos will make a grown man email like a 14 year old girl.

My normal recipe called for corn syrup, but I didn't have enough corn syrup.

Instead I just made a normal batch of rice krispy treats using the recipe you can find on any bag of marshmallows, but at the end I added oh I dunno, about a cup or so of creamy peanut butter that I had warmed up in the microwave so it was nice and runny and it mixed well with the melted marshmallows.

After they cooled in the pan, I just melted 1 cup of chocolate chips along with 1 and 2/3rds cups of butterscotch chips.

Spread that over the top of the rice krispy treats, let it cool, and ta-da, squeal inducing deliciousness!

Nice. Thanks for the encouragement. Those look like an excellent choice for the weekly experimental-bribe-the-guitar-teacher treats.

You know, I don't think these would go bad if you were to mail some down to Delaware...

Oh yum.

Thanks for that post. It's 11:00am, I finished eating my lunch half an hour ago and am stuck at work for another five hours. And now I want peanut-y rice krispie goodness. Sigh...

Pretending I didn't see this, and that the necessary is not in the pantry.

I knew there was a risk of infecting you with the Scotcheroo bug simply by mentioning them. Very dangerous.
