Chocolate Scotcheroos

I have been making these bars for years. It's been a tradition that when we go on vacation I have to make a pan of Chocolate Scotcheroos.

1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup (or honey)*
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups Rice Krispies

Combine sugar and syrup (or honey) in 3 qt. saucepan.  Cook over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until mixture begins to bubble.  Remove from heat.  Stir in peanut butter; mix well.  Add Rice Krispies; stir until well blended.  Press mixture into buttered 13x9 pan.

1 c. (6 oz) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 c. (6 oz) Butterscotch Chips

Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together over very low heat or over hot but not boiling water, stirring until well blended.  Remove from heat; spread evenly over Rice Krispies mixture.  Cool until firm.  Cut into bars.

* I use 1/2 c. syrup and 1/2 c. honey

Makes 48 bars
