These treats made with Rice Krispies don’t have marshmallow, like you’d find in the original recipe (see that here!), but they’re no less indulgent.

Originally called Choco-Scotch clusters when they came out in the 60s, these easy no-bake Chocolate-butterscotch rice krispies treats have delicious chocolate, butterscotch and peanut butter flavors.

The retro recipe from Kellogg’s made 48 very small treats (about one tablespoon each), but we usually double the size of each one.
