Did anyone else ever make Scotch-A-Roos? The Rice Krispy Treat that is covered with a chocolate butterscotch topping?
Well, I did, all the time growing up!
I NEEDED to make a crunchy peanut buttery chocolate butterscotch covered treat to go with my pregnancy craving…
And this is what I came up with!
The CRUNCH Bottom Part is AMAZING!!! Especially if you liked my Peanut Butter Cup Dip!
And the other cool thing about this treat is there isn’t any baking involved!
Just toast up the unsweet coconut shreds and almond slivers!
That’s it! Then mix with the other ingredients for the bottom…
I seriously could have eaten this by it’s self! It’s that good! Flatten in a buttered 9X13 glass dish.
Mix up the topping.
Pour on top.
Freeze or Refrigerate depending on how fast you want it. Cut up and serve!!
Now, my THM friends, this is an S. It is gluten free, sugar free, and low carb.
I did use the new Sweetener by TRIM HEALTHY MAMA called Gentle Sweet. You can buy it here at my affiliate store… HERE
