Scotcharoos ~ a Family Favorite Treat!

Scotcharoos first entered my life over a dozen years ago. We had been hanging out at my parent’s cabin at the lake having fun doing all the usual lake activities: water-skiing, jet-skiing, bike riding, fishing, and best of all, laying in the hammock with a great book, when my cousins popped over from next door with a platter of the most amazing, delectable, chocolaty-peanut buttery-butterscotchery sweet, and chewy treats. Needless to say with our crew of kids (and adults), they were gone in minutes.
