A chewy, peanut butter crispy cereal base is topped with decadent, melted dark chocolate and butterscotch chips. This scotcheroo recipe includes a light, flaky salt topping to kick the flavor up a notch.These chewy scotcheroos are made without corn syrup, using low-cost ingredients you likely already have on hand. They’re also gluten-free!


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 16 oz bag marshmallows
  • 6 cups puffed rice cereal
  • 10 oz dark chocolate chips
  • 11 oz butterscotch chips
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon flaky salt


  1. In a large pot, melt the butter, peanut butter and marshmallows together over medium-low heat for about 3-5 minutes, or until completely melted and smooth. Be careful to not over-cook at this point or you will have hard Scotcheroos at the end.
  2. Turn the heat off and use a rubber spatula to fold the puffed rice cereal into the melted marshmallow mixture until combined. Grease a 9×13 baking pan and use the rubber spatula to evenly spread the puffed rice mixture into the pan.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the dark chocolate, butterscotch chips and coconut oil. Melt for 30 seconds, stir and then melt for another 30 seconds and stir. Add on an additional 15 seconds if the chips haven’t melted completely yet. Pour the melted chocolate over the scotcheroo base and spread it out evenly. Sprinkle with the flaky salt.
  4. Let the scotcheroos set, uncovered, at room temperature for 2  hours before cutting and serving.
