Even though I left my teaching position 2 years ago, I still get a little bit of back-to-school anxiety when I enter Target and see the aisles lined with folders, markers, backpacks and everything in between.
And as much as I love working from home and blogging full time, there is a little piece of me that misses the hustle and bustle of the back-to-school season. Although I think that piece of me may fade quickly once Elle enters preschool next year.
Elle loves being in the kitchen while I cook and bake. And even though she’s only two, I can always find a few tasks for her to help me with, which is why I love easy recipes like these Chocolate Scotcheroos.
Check out how simple they are to make:
If you’ve never had Chocolate Scotcheroos, let me tell you, you’re missing out! The original recipe was created in the 1960’s and it featured rice cereal, chocolate and peanut butter. And I think no one could argue that flavor combination is an absolute classic, which is why I love Karo® Syrup’s Chocolate Scotcheroos.
They don’t require a ton of ingredients and they’re super simple to make, so they’re the perfect recipe to get the kiddos involved with. And if you have a peanut allergy issue,
I’m happy to report that this recipe works beautifully with WOWBUTTER or almond butter. The Karo® Syrup will keep the scotcheroos soft and chewy regardless of what type of nut butter or alternative you decide to go with.
I even made Chocolate Salted Caramel Scotcheroos with hazelnut spread and they were amazing.
Adding fun, festive sprinkles and lollipop sticks makes these Chocolate Scotcheroos extra special. And I’m pretty certain they’d be the perfect welcome home snack on the first day of school! Just be sure to make a little extra because these adorable treats are sure to disappear in a flash!
