Scotcheroos

Melissa's Cuisine: Scotcheroos
Sometimes simple really is better.  As much as I love to mess with recipes and make them unique, there's something special about a simple recipe.

Earlier this month, one of my good friends graduated from high school.  Yes, she might be 6 years younger than me, but we've never really noticed the age difference.  She asked me if I would help her prepare some of the snacks for her graduation open house.  We spent an evening making about 150 cupcakes and 4 big pans of scotcheroos.

It had been a long time since I'd had a scotcheroo, much less made them, but by the end of the night I had the recipe memorized.  The next day, all I could think about was scotcheroos.  It was a regular craving, multiplied by a pregnancy craving and I knew I had to have them!  I ventured to the basement to see if we had the ingredients to make a batch and surprisingly I did.  (I was worried I would not have the butterscotch chips.)  I was able to put together a batch before I left for work in the morning and by time I got home they were hardened and I could enjoy a big piece!

  3. If you like to maintain a good health, you should take Keto diet. No side effect of this Keto diet.
