Scotcheroos and a See’s Candy Giveaway!

While I love trying new Christmas recipes each year, there’s something really comforting about old favorites. Scotcheroos are one of Robert’s and my most beloved treats. Scotcheroos, in case you aren’t familiar, are basically Rice Krispie treats with peanut butter, butterscotch, and chocolate chips, but without the marshmallows (okay so basically the Rice Krispies cereal is the only common demoninator ;)). Scotcheroos are simple to make and they’re delicious.ย  Best of all, the recipe can easily be doubled (or even tripled) if you’re looking to make a big batch.

These bars aren’t going to blow anyone away with their beauty or complexity, but there are never any leftovers. There’s something very addicting about these simple treats; and sometimes, the simplest stuff is the best.

See’s Candy Giveaway

Speaking of old favorites, See’s Candy has long been my family’s chocolate store of choice ever since my Aunt Khaki got us all hooked a long time ago.ย  Based out of Los Angeles, this wonderful candy has been making regular appearances in my stocking over the years; and now, I want it to make its way into your house for the holidays.

If you win, you can choose fromย a pack of chocolate-covered marshmallow trees or an assorted snowman box of See’s butterscotch, chocolate, vanilla, and cafe latte Lollypops. Either of these will make great additions under the tree, in a stocking, or in your nightstand drawer. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I only make cornflake candy at Christmas time. It’s SO yummy, but also incredibly adictive. It’s like a cross between rich fudge and a crisp cookie. Ahhhhh ๐Ÿ™‚
