Inspired for Chocolate

A Facebook friend commented last night that she was making Rice Krispie treats. I said that we make the Chocolate Scotcheroos version of the snack. Today would be a great day to make this simple and yummy treat with the girls.

So, in typical Sue J. fashion, we dive into making a treat before we check the pantry.

"Light corn syrup. We should have that." (Er.... half that.)

"OK, we'll make half a batch."

"Rice cereal, chocolate chips.... [Pause] Butterscotch chips. Uh oh!" (Er...substitute for butterscotch chips.....)

"Oh, we can use the caramel sauce in the refrigerator! It has to melt with the chocolate chips anyway."

And off we went from there.

Peanut butter in the melted sugar, then add the cereal.

Press mixture into pan. Pour and spread chocolate/caramel sauce on top. Let stand (away from hungry girls) until set.

The gooey chocolate made me think of an unfortunate incident for a tractor-trailer truck riding on I-95 yesterday. The truck, full of candy, tipped over! (Thanks for the tip, Kelly. I mean, not that you did the tipping or anything. Though, if you actually got some chocolate, you might have tipped them....)

Slice and EAT!

Lick fingers and lips multiple times.

Yummy good!

BTW, When a truck tips over, supposedly none of the contents can be used for retail regardless of the condition. HOWEVER, they have been known to share with firefighters...
yep, those were the days.

Of course we never had a candy truck. We did have a truck full of live chickens. That just wasn't quite the same as candy..
