The Partiologist: Birthday Scotcharoo Bars!

Birthday Scotcharoo Bars!

There are Scotcharoos and then there are Birthday Scotcharoos.  It's like a Rice Krispie Treat dressed up, ready to party.  It is the perfect birthday treat for my daughter who is gluten free and the perfect treat for me because I LOVE Scotcharoos!  They have been a family favorite since I was a little girl and I love them as much now as before.  Maybe better because they are cuter than before!
Birthday Scotcharoos!

Birthday Scotcharoos, ready to celebrate.
Instead of just pouring the chocolate mixture over the top, I made a design with a Wilton mold.
And I love the result!

Here's how~

Mix up a batch of scotcharoos.  Recipe below.

Next, melt the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips, stir until smooth.

This is the mold that started the scotcharoo celebration.

Pour the melted chocolate into the mold.

Freeze until solid.

Remove the chocolate from the mold.

Lay a chocolate bar on top of the scotcharoos and cut to size.

Add a spoonful of chocolate to the top and top with the chocolate bar.
