Microwaving Scotcheroos, a no bake dessert, keeps them soft, chewy, and crispy. Gimme these chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter, and crispy cereal bars!
Scotcheroos are dessert bars made with rice crispy cereal, sugar, peanut butter, and topped with melted chocolate chips and butterscotch chips.
