ScotcharoosOne of the silliest names for a treat is the scotcharoo recipe.  I think that might be why it is so popular among kids.  “Hey, Mom.  Can we make scotcharoos?”  It’s kind of catchy, isn’t?

Scotcharoos are a variation on the more traditional Rice Krispie Treats.  They are a bit more involved, but worth it because they are scrumptious!

This is a great recipe for kids to make, with a limited amount of adult assistance.

I tried to find out about the history of scotcharoos, but there isn’t much information available.  Each page I found (and there were not many) had been deleted.  It started to seem as though someone wants all traces of how scotcharoos came to be to be removed from public knowledge…

Okay, I admit it, that sounds a bit extreme.  My guess is that the first scotcharoo recipe was created by the Kellogg’s company, since the main ingredient is Rice Krispies cereal.  That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!
