We are getting our big snow. The one all you have wished for(don't include me). The kids have been out to play a couple times, they came back in snow covered, and wanting hot chocolate. I was able to run to the store and get some since its right down the road. They were very happy, I didn't get those cookies made but we make something even better. Scotcheroos. I am telling you what, these are the ultimate rice crispy treats. And they have no wheat. The recipe is as follows.

1cup sugar
1cup light corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups rice crispies
12 oz bag of chocolate chips

Put sugar and corn syrup in sauce pan and bring to a boil on medium heat. Remove from heat and add peanut butter, mix thouroughly. Add this mixture to the rice crispies and mix together. Spread into buttered 9x13 pan. Melt chocolate chips either in double boiler, or in microwave and then spread onto rice crispies. Put in fridge until set and then enjoy.

When I eat these all the wonderful memories of childhood rush back. Now I can't garantee that will happen for you, I grew up eating these. The first time I had plain rice crispy treats I was sorely disappointed. I hope you try them and enjoy, because i'm not sharing.
