Heath Bar Chocolate Scotcheroos Dessert Recipe

Valentine’s Day is just two days away! (then what am I going to post about!? Just kidding...already have some fun posts that don’t involve red or hearts) I thought I’d sneak in one last recipe that would be the perfect treat for someone you love.
Remember how a couple of months ago I used International Delights Sweet Cream to make apple dip? Well this time I added the Heath creamer to make a twist on a delicious recipe.

Have you had Chocolate Scotcheroos before? They are a chocolatel-y version of Rice Crispy Treats. For my twist on this recipe I went to the refrigerator section and grabbed the Heath creamer and a bag of Heath bits for a topping.

Warning: these are very rich. One square will fill you up. While this recipe makes a whole 9×13 pan, you could easily make a few plates to deliver to friends. Here’s how I made them:

Rich and tasty Heath Chocolate Scotcheroos
Ingredients
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 6 cups rice crispy cereal
  • 1 cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 3/4 c. Heath International Delights Creamer
  • 1/2 c. crushed Heath bars or bagged Heath topping
Instructions
  1. Place corn syrup and sugar in a sauce pan.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil. (careful not to burn)
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Stir in peanut butter and mix well.
  5. Add rice crispy cereal and stir until well mixed.
  6. Press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. (I use a spatula that I spray with cooking spray to pat it down easily)
  7. Set aside.
  8. Melt chocolate, butterscotch chips and creamer together in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly.
  9. Spread evenly over cereal mixture.
  10. Sprinkle with Heath bar topping before it sets.
  11. Let stand until firm.
  12. Cut into bars when cool.
Notes
*Cold liquids should never be added to melted chocolate, as it can cause the chocolate to seize. Make sure that liquids are warm (but not boiling) when you add them to chocolate. I just warmed up the creamer in the microwave for 40 seconds (microwave times vary) and then added it to the chocolate and butterscotch chips.

After I spread the chocolate and added the bits, this is what it looked like:
I helped speed up the time for the chocolate to solidify more by sticking the pan in the fridge.
