Chex Scotcheroos-Gluten Free

GLUTEN FREE desserts that you cant tell are gluten free...are the BEST! PLUS, this recipe is "naturally" gluten free, so you don't have to buy anything crazy to adapt the recipe! So, whether you are gluten free or not....these WILL make your mouth water if you have a sweet tooth.

How fabulous do these little guys look?! They taste EVEN better!

*This recipe is for an 8x8 pan (perfect for my small family of 3) but if I were taking them somewhere, or had a larger family I would definitely double the recipe and do a 13x9 pan)

3 cups Rice or Corn Chex Cereal (I used rice)
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips **Hershey's are gluten-free, but I did notice some other brands had gluten in the form of barley in the ingredient list, so READ if you are making these for someone with a Gluten Intolerance or Celiac Disease!
1/4 cup peanut butter chips

Grease large round bowl, pour the cereal in, set aside. Grease 8x8 pan, set aside
In a pan on the stove, combine sugar and corn syrup, stir over medium heat until boiling.
Remove immediately and stir in peanut butter, pour over cereal and fold in, pour cereal mixture into 8x8 pan. In a microwave safe bowl, combine all chips and microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted and smooth. (It took me 1min/30sec) Pour melted cips over the bars. Allow to cool completely before cutting.
Once cool, cut into bars and ENJOY!!
