Fun Food Friday- Scotcharoos

Scotcharoos are one of Steve's favorite treats and amazingly, I had never made them mostly because I had never seen a recipe for them.  But my mother-in-law gave me a recipe book from Steve's old grade school and as I was looking through it I saw this recipe and decided it was high time I made them for my hubbie because #1 they're one of his favorites and #2 they are incredibly easy. :)  Everything is 1 cup except for the Rice Krispies which makes it super easy to remember.  We decided to be nice and take them along on our trip to Wisconsin with Steve's family so we could share.  We also discovered that after a few days they get hard, but if you just cut out the size piece you want and then stick it in the microwave for a few seconds, it's just perfect.  We have a couple at church that when it's their turn to do cookies after church they always do homemade (usually we have store bought) and she a lot of times has Scotcharoos and they are always the first to go.  So if you want to try a delicious treat, try this one out, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
