Peanut Butter Choco-butterscotch Rice Crispy Treats

Is it really September 14th? Where has this year gone? The summer started off a little gloomy with the failure of fresh IVF #3 (our 4th round of IVF). But after the sadness cleared, this was a really great summer. First off, I’ve lived in Seattle for over 10 years now and this, by far, was the best summer weather I can remember having. Lots and lots of sunshine, little rain, even 90 degree weather two days ago! Hubby and I finished the remodel of my new office, now it feels like mine and I’m enjoying all of Hubby’s hard work in helping me get it that way. We just got back from a wonderful trip to Maui, beautiful weather, good food and fun times with good friends. Now….I’m finally getting into fall mood. I had my first pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks earlier this week and I threw these into my shopping basket yesterday.

Fall makes me think of crisp air, football games, apple cider, pumpkin everything, coziness, sweaters, boots, and fresh starts (I think I get this from back when it was back-to-school). Another thing I enjoy are sharing treats for football games, Halloween parties or for no reason at all. A good friend and former co-worker of mine shared this yummy, easy recipe with me. You can throw this together on a moments notice and have homemade treats to share for any occasion at all.

Peanut Butter Choco-butterscotch Rice Crispy Treats


  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup light Karo syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 cups rice crispies
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup butterscotch chips

1. Mix peanut butter, Karo syrup, and sugar in a pot, and bring to a slight boil.  Stir until creamy.

2.  Take mixture off the burner, and mix with rice crispies cereal.

3. Spread mixture in a 13×9 inch pan that was prepared with cooking spray.

4. Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together (in the microwave or stove top).

5. Spread melted chips over the rice crispies mixture, let cool until it hardens.

6. Cut into 2 inch squares and enjoy!!!



Luckily, my infertility hasn’t been in the forefront of my mind.  I’m taking birth control pills right now (spotting constantly which has been annoying), but otherwise, not doing anything fertility related.  Our last frozen embryo transfer is scheduled for later in November, so I will begin taking medications and doing injections to prepare later in October.  I’m going to enjoy this mental and physical freedom and enjoy my favorite season of the year!
